Big Bay

Even though Big Bay may be overshadowed by tourism juggernauts like New York and London, you'll find this Discovery Islands destination is still worth a visit.

Big Bay Vacation Packages

Big Bay is located 2,300 miles west of Ottawa, the national capital.

Let the sun's rays hit your face and the waves wash over your feet. A wonderful place to start is Mahood Beach, 55 miles to the southeast, or Willingdon Beach Park, 45 miles to the southeast.

Take some time to discover the wonders of the region's natural spaces. Some nearby locations are Rebecca Spit Marine Provincial Park (20 miles away) and Main Lake Provincial Park (16 miles away).

Mount Washington Alpine Resort, about 45 miles away, is awesome for snow-based activities. So when the temperatures drop, grab your winter woolies!

Stuart Island and Sonora Island are two destinations in the surrounding area that you can easily work into your itinerary.

Heriot Bay is roughly 20 miles south of Big Bay. This regional center offers a diverse range of attractions, including Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre, Kwagiulth Museum and Cultural Center and Wildcoast Adventures - Private Day Tours. If time allows, also drop in at Campbell River Museum and Torii Gate.

What's a vacation without indulging in some fabulous cuisine? Discovery Islands is a wonderful place to stimulate your senses!

Game meat and prawns are two popular ingredients that you're sure to come across.

A couple of common dishes worth trying are smoked salmon and pancakes with maple syrup.

If you're craving something sweet, butter tarts is a must-try.

If sampling a bottle or two of the local brew is high up on your to-do list, make your way down to the closest watering hole and order a round of Molson Dry

For something stronger, order some Crown Royal Whisky and propose a toast to your courteous hosts.

If a pleasant glass of wine is something you might enjoy, ask for the menu and look for Niagara Pinot Noir or Okanagan Valley Chardonnay. These exceptional drops come direct to your table from the region's vineyards.

Nobody wants to say goodbye to a vacation. However, we're sure you'll walk away from this striking part of the world with a camera full of photos and a heart full of memories.

Nanook Lodge Seaplane Base Airport is the most convenient airport at 1 mile to the south, so make sure you leave plenty of time.
