The Comox Valley really is the recreation capital. All year round there is ample to do in the great outdoors, but now that summer is upon us the recreational options are into full swing!
For the golfing enthusiasts there are ample golf courses to choose from. Crown Isle caters to the seasoned golfers, but amateurs are welcome too. If you are looking for more of a pitch and putt, longlands offers a shorter course perfect for beginners. For those of you who want a few longer holes, but are either too worried about slicing a ball into the windows of some high value real estate or just don’t want to spend a fortune Mulligan’s may be more your style, with twilight rates as low as only $8!
For those mountain bikers out there the trails are ready to go with a wide variety of options for the hard-core extremists as well as the entry level riders. Cumberland has plenty of great trails to choose from, especially if you are looking for some big air, or you can take it easy with the chip trails over at Seal Bay.
Kayaking is also a great pastime during the summer months with some great river, lake, and ocean kayaking available. A popular drop in spot is not far from down town, at the north end of the Courtenay Airpark – you can then paddle up stream to Lewis Park, or head out into the estuary and Comox Harbour. For the next few months, just follow the signs for the construction on Cliffe Ave and you’ll get there!
We can’t forget about the many Comox Valley beaches! There is endless water fun in all corners of the Valley. If you want Lake, River, or Ocean swimming it’s all here. There are some great beaches around Comox Lake and along the Puntledge River. Sandy ocean beaches can be found at Miracle Beach, Kye Bay, and Goose Spit to name a few.
No matter what you are into, if it’s recreation, you will find it here in the Comox Valley! For some more ideas, be sure to check out our Comox Valley Recreation page!
