The Preferred Destination
"Komoux" as named by the First Nations people stands for "land of plenty". Today, that is still an accurate description. People from all over western Canada are moving to the Comox Valley for its picturesque and serene environment, warm comfortable climate, and availability of amenities and services. It is a virtual paradise of beaches, rivers, mountains, lakes, wilderness parks, festivals, culture, artisans, agriculture and recreational activities, located ocean side. With an airport, inland highway and proximity to the ferries it is also an accessible community for visitors and for getting around. For west coast options, housing prices are a fraction of those in Victoria and Vancouver.
Kye Bay at low tide provides endless exploration opportunities for strollers along it's sandy shores.
The Comox Valley Glacier overlooks the main street of downtown Courtenay.
The Comox Valley is comprised of three municipalities, the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay, and the Village of Cumberland. The Comox Valley Regional District includes the islands of Denman and Hornby. While each community has its own personality, they all share in the unique gifts this valley has to offer. The scenic valley covers 50 km of coastline reaching to the mountains and glacier, with a healthy fertile valley in between. From anywhere the views are amazing, including the glacier and snow covered mountains, fertile farmland, seaside and coastal mountains in the distance. Being in touch with the land is the way of life here.
