Photos: Gabriola Island

If you’ve traveled to British Columbia in Canada, purchase odds are you haven’t been to Gabriola Island. You’ve likely visited its much larger, link more well known big brother, Nanaimo, as it’s just 5 kilometers away. But if you haven’t taken the short 20-minute ferry ride over to Gabriola, you’re missing out on a sliver of Pacific Northwestern paradise. Covering 22.24 square miles, Gabriola is endowed with large stretches of public beaches and forests, making it ideal for adventurers who love the outdoors. There’s also a small, but well-established community of residents and artists who live on the island, thereby giving it the name of “Isle of the Arts.” Check out a photo gallery from a long weekend trip to Gabriola below. Also, if you do venture out, I highly recommend overnight accommodations at Marina’s Hideaway. The outdoor hot tub with a view is 100% worth the stay!
