Recreation

Port Alberni’s entire culture surrounds recreation. Being one of the cities on Vancouver Island, residents love to spend time admiring the beautiful landscape of Port Alberni. The entirety of Alberni Valley is scattered with trail networks and walking paths for avid hikers. The Alberni Inlet Trail, the Log Train Trail, and the Roger Creek Trail are three local favourites. If you aren’t the hiking type, no worries! All across Port Alberni you’ll find residents biking, surfing, horseback riding, kayaking, rock climbing, scuba diving and more! Whichever outdoor adventure you prefer, Port Alberni is sure to have it.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing way to spend your day in Port Alberni, give fishing a go! Port Alberni has some of the top Sockeye, Chinook, and Coho Salmon fishing in the world. Feel free to rent a fishing charter or simply set up in a lakeside park and have a field day. For something a little bit closer to land, Port Alberni also offers several excellent golf courses like the Alberni Golf Club and Hollies Executive Golf Course.

While most of Port Alberni’s recreation is outdoor-focused, there is also plenty to do indoors. The Alberni Valley Multiplex is big enough to spend the entire day in, with two NHL-sized ice rinks, a track and field stadium, over 20 ball diamonds, two equestrian show rings and a barn. In addition, the multiplex offers rollerblading and rock climbing in Glenwood Centre, tennis courts and shooting ranges in the Alberni Athletic Hall, and an Aquatic and Fitness Centre. No matter how you like to stay active, the Alberni Valley Multiplex will serve you well.

Entertainment and Dining

While Port Alberni isn’t considered a big city, there is still plenty of entertainment to be found. The Paramount Theatre provides a lovely date night or family night out to catch a movie, while you’ll find live performances at the Capitol Theatre. The Uptown district along Harbour Quay offers a plethora of shopping, dining, and galleries to browse through as well.

Port Alberni also hosts annual festivals for residents, including the Five Acre Shaker music festival and the Alberni District Fall Fair. In true Vancouver Island fashion, one of Port Alberni’s most popular festivals is the Port Alberni Salmon Festival, which offers prizes for the largest salmon caught and the most salmon caught in one session.

For a truly unique dining experience outside of the Uptown district, check out the Swept Away Inn. Swept Away offers authentic Moroccan food and is located on a restored tugboat! In addition, Port Alberni also offers a number of microbreweries. Some local favourites include Twin City Brewing and Dog Mountain Brewing in the North and South regions, respectively.

Medical Access

Considering how small Port Alberni is, it has some exceptional healthcare facilities. Acute care, home care, mental healthcare, and emergency care are all located within Port Alberni. No matter what kind of care you need, from general practitioners to surgeons, you’ll find it here. West Coast General Hospital opened in the Valley in 2001 and serves residents all over the west coast of The Island. West Coast General also offers maternity and NICU services, so you’ll have dependable care when starting a family in Port Alberni.

Transportation

Like many cities on Vancouver Island, Port Alberni is pretty spread out. It’s difficult to accomplish most errands on foot, so it’s best if you have a personal vehicle when living here. Most homes for sale in Port Alberni are within a few minutes’ drive to the nearest highway, and there is ample parking no matter where you go. For public transportation, the Port Alberni Regional Transit System offers four bus routes to choose from, which will get you from place to place on the Island.
