This seaside community of 14,000 (and growing) is quickly becoming one of the hottest vacation and relocation destinations on Vancouver Island.
Comox is characterized by a fresh, spirited energy, an infectious joie de vivre and a modern facelift spurred by millions of new dollars in capital investment. It’s island living at its finest: boutique shopping, quaint cafes, ocean side activities, beach fires after dark and a tantalizing array of award-winning restaurants.
It’s true – This is Comox.
If wining and dining is part of your ideal vacation, you’ll be glad you chose Comox. Sip award-winning local wines; indulge in fresh from the sea shellfish, farm-to-plate produce and soak up the sun on the Comox Valley’s most spectacular ocean side patios. Whether you’re craving sumptuous meats, impossibly fresh sushi or even just an expertly prepared sandwich or cappuccino, Comox has you covered. For a uniquely Island experience, explore Comox’s own Fisherman’s Wharf, where you can choose fresh-from-the-dock seafood right from the fishers who call these waters home.
Stand-up paddleboard the shimmering waters of Comox Harbour, kite surf the wind-whipped waves at Goose Spit or try catamaran sailing amongst the islets and inlets of the Salish Sea. Tee off at our immaculately groomed year-round golf course or lace up your runners and take in the killer ocean views on Comox’s renowned self-guided walking tours.
Looking for that special something? You’ll find it in one of Comox’s many independently owned galleries, bookstores and eclectic boutiques. And if you time your visit right you’ll hit festival season in Comox, headlined by Nautical Days and the Filberg Festival on BC Day weekend. They’re just two of the wildly popular summer festivals that keep Comox buzzing with live music, artisan crafts and ocean side adventures.
Once you discover Comox and experience its rugged coastal beauty and breathtaking mountain views, spot seals from the marina while the kids cool off at a seaside splash park you’ll understand why Comox has become one of the hottest vacation and oceanfront real estate markets in BC.
