Parksville, British Columbia
What makes the seawater at this laid back Vancouver Island resort town so deliciously warm? The extreme tide recedes up to a kilometre from shore, making it ideal for wee ones to frolic in. The shallow tide pools also lure teens onto skimboards and away from their devices. Family gatherings are oh-so comfortable at Tigh-Na-Mara, a resort cradled within 22 forested acres. This rustic (without the dust) resort boasts 38 ocean-view suites, an outdoor playground, plus its own wide stretch of sandy beach.
