Many people think they live in the best place in the world. But, the truth is…WE DO!
Port Alberni is truly a hidden gem on Vancouver Island. After all, we’re located in the heart of an island on the Pacific Ocean; with an abundance of incredible lifestyle opportunities for an affordable price. Does it get any better than that?
Our booming real estate market is proof that we aren’t alone in our thinking! Flocks of people and families of all ages and backgrounds are coming to Port Alberni. Not only is it an affordable place to live and build a family, but we have a strong sense of community with plenty of amenities, like recreational facilities, local stores and markets, excellent schools, and more. Our community also boasts a deep-sea marina and port, a dedicated seniors activity centre, an all-weather track, an ice arena, a live theatre building, AND a brand new $58 million Alberni District Senior Secondary School! There are solid plans and growth for the future of Port Alberni as well, like the new aquatic centre currently in the works.
Close by is the renowned Sproat Lake, with high-end waterfront properties, boating, fishing and tons of other outdoor summer activities. Sproat Lake is home to an established community of year-round residents, and also beckons visitors worldwide to vacation on our lake.
Not to mention, we LOVE where we are positioned on Vancouver Island. We’re right in the middle! We have easy access to everywhere – Tofino, Nanaimo and ferry to the Mainland, North or South Island.
Nothing really seems like it is too far away, but there’s NOTHING better than coming home to Port Alberni, Vancouver Island’s best kept secret.
