Activities

With a mild temperate climate, many public beaches and forested parks, Gabriola Island is well suited to a host of activities whether they be an outdoor adventure or a peaceful escape. Page’s Resort & Marina is a perfect home base for all year round activities from diving the local reefs to relaxing on your private deck, enjoying a coffee and drinking in the sights and sounds of our forests and the stunning views of Silva Bay.

For the adventurous, you can dive the local reefs, mountain bike or hike the nearby trails, rent a kayak and discover the delightful, private coves and beaches of the beautiful Flat Top islands that surround the bay. You can take your friends for a morning of world-class salmon fishing and an afternoon of golf on Gabriola’s challenging course overlooking Hoggan Lake followed by a relaxing beverage with the “locals” at one of the many island pubs. Or how about renting one of our scooters and touring the island galleries, restaurants and shops.

A quieter day might include a walk around the shores of beautiful Drumbeg Provincial Park, exploring the ancient Petroglyphs or a visit to the many white sand beaches to take in the incredible marine life far out in the ocean and close up in the many tidal pools.
