Qualicum Falls – Cathedral Grove – Coombs For this trip follow Hwy. 4 from Qualicum Beach towards Port Alberni. Qualicum Falls Provincial Park has an excellent trail with lookout points over the falls. After a visit to this spot carry on towards Port Alberni, passing Cameron Lake, (a beautiful lake for canoeing and fishing).
Qualicum Bay has a nice clean, quiet beach area. Accessed from Sunny Beach Road, it is protected from traffic noise by a tract of private land. If you follow the water to the left, during lower tides you'll find lovely sandy areas, and relatively warm water, comfortable for swimming.
