Qualicum Beach is a town located in the Regional District of Nanaimo, British Columbia. As of the 2006 census, the town had a total population of 8,502.
Located on the Strait of Georgia on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island in the shadow of Mount Arrowsmith, the community has been a popular tourist destination for residents of Victoria and Vancouver as well as a retirement community. It is served by the Island Highway (the main North-South highway on the Island) and by a daily train. The community is dotted with rental cottages along the coastline. It has the oldest average population in Canada.
Qualicum Beach is frequently, although informally, grouped as a twin city with the neighbouring city of Parksville.

Waymarking posted above.
