The Art of Exploring and Having Fun..
Power down your phone and take off your watch, it's time to have some fun on the island. There are kayak rentals and guided adventures, fishing-boat charters, world-renowned diving spots, sandy half-moon beaches and a network of protected parks. Here on Gabriola, you can recreate to your heart's content. Did you know we have more public access points to more diverse beaches than any other BC island? There's an extensive network of hiking and biking trails thanks to GaLTT (www.galtt.ca), our local land and trails trust. Bike the island on our famous North-South loop. For more organized play, we have a challenging 9-hole public golf course, fitness gym, tennis courts and sports fields.
