The Copper mine resort

Enjoy great views of the ocean and coastal mountain ranges from your own place in this resort located in a former copper mine on Vancouver island.

The hillside is rich in mineral remains and green moss with yellow creeks running between thick cement walls.

The children's playground features a swing and a target shooting range. You can practice your shooting skills on the cement walls and on large rusty propane tanks as targets. The walls feature numerous bullet holes - just add some of your own!

The million dollar view from the resort is unique and is particularly striking from the local swimming pool enclosure where you can relax in the therapeutic green slime.
