Winter Harbour

Tucked away on the North-West coast of Vancouver Island is the small fishing community of Winter Harbour.

This quaint village boasts access to some of the best west coast fishing on the island coast. One of the major benefits is that the village is road accessible from the North Island Hwy just south of Port Hardy, thanks to a major gravel road (watch for the very large logging trucks on this road).

The community itself has full service properties and a lovely boardwalk that runs along the oceanfront.

Fishing is the main activity, although there are some hiking paths near-by and it is also a great base for exploring further north to Raft Cove, Palmerston Bay and even San Josef Bay.


Winter Harbour is definitely one place to add to the list of out-of-the-way Vancouver Island communities worth seeing.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
