1. Goose Spit Regional Park
My family is a big fan of beaches. The kids also love s’mores over a bonfire. Combine those two, and you’ve got our ideal weekend getaway! Located in Comox, B.C., this area stretches over two kilometres long and is comprised of a sand, cobble and rock beach. It’s the perfect place to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life and unwind. A unique landform, Goose Spit Park is part of the Comox Harbour and houses a sheltered lagoon—a popular spot to see some Bald Eagles, gulls, loons and a variety of winter water birds! Open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., this is the perfect place to enjoy a beach fire with family and friends. The picturesque park also links to walking trails along Hawkins Road.
