LOCATION - Union Bay

Situated about half way up the east coast of Vancouver Island, Union Bay is fifteen kilometres south of Courtenay. It’s part of the beautiful Comox Valley (see COMOX VALLEY), a lush tapestry of mountains, rivers, forests, farms and beaches. The region is known for its variety of outdoor recreational activities, as a thriving centre for arts and culture and for its fresh farm products and seafood.

Nestled between the Beaufort Range and the waters of Baynes Sound and the Strait of Georgia, the Union Bay area enjoys breathtaking views of Denman, Hornby and Texada islands, as well as Sandy Island Marine Provincial Park, with the towering peaks of the British Columbia mainland mountains in the background.

As part of the Comox Valley, Union Bay’s convenient location makes it easy to take advantage of the incredible selection of cultural and recreational activities and events in the region. Union Bay also serves as a gateway to all that Vancouver Island (see VANCOUVER ISLAND) has to offer. Mt. Washington Alpine Resort, Desolation Sound, Strathcona Provincial Park, Tofino and the rugged West Coast of Vancouver Island and much, much more are only a short distance away.

Venturing farther afield is easy too. A 25-minute drive from Union Bay, the Comox Valley airport offers regularly scheduled daily flights to Vancouver, as well as economical WestJet connections to Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta and beyond. Nearby BC Ferries terminals provide access to Vancouver, British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, Powell River and Denman and Hornby Islands.
