Year round at Gabriola Island, you will experience a mild climate. After your 20-minute ferry ride from Nanaimo, or your brief flight from Vancouver, you will quickly sink into the bliss of Gabriola’s warm summer, or enjoy the gentle weather that blesses this area day after day in each of the seasons. Like the 4,500 locals, you will be able to decide between active or calm activities – or not much activity at all – if that’s what you choose.
You can experience the variety of sandy, pebbly, or rocky beaches to play, swim, and beach comb, and you might even catch the annual Sand Sculpture competition at Gabriola Sands Provincial Park. Your children will love to romp and splash on the safe, expansive beach at Sandwell Provincial Park; it is ideal for your little ones.
If you prefer, there are shady trails to walk, wander, and quietly enjoy the wonders of nature. Or perhaps you would prefer to ride your bicycle or drive your vehicle out along the gently rolling roads to explore the rest of the island.
Gabriola’s many parks vary – from the protected area of old-growth forest in the 707-acre wood right at the heart of the island, to those that lead right down to the waterfront where you can watch the many sea creatures in their natural habitat. Drumbeg Park is a favourite swimming spot enjoyed by many locals, while also *preserving a Garry oak ecosystem.
For those who enjoy water sports, the coast around Gabriola contains many good fishing areas for the fishermen and women in your group and, with luck, the locals might just tell you about the deep trench that makes the waters off Dragon’s Lodge a prime spot for your favourite catch.
Wherever you go around Gabriola Island, the views are stunning and, if you drive or cycle on the North Road-South Road loop, you will see the mountains of the mainland across the water. You don’t want to miss Entrance Island Lighthouse, and on most evenings, you can see the lights of Vancouver and Gibson’s Landing twinkling in the distance. Try getting up early to watch the sunrise, or waiting until later for the sunset – and make sure to take your camera – it can be spectacular.
Guests are welcome to choose any vendor to assist with their event, however, the following list of businesses have provided services for events held at Dragon’s Lodge.
