  • A lovely place to go for a walk on the beach. The lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other. Lots of interesting birds and wildlife activity in the lagoon. Popular spot for doing nature paintings.

  • A must see destination just west of Victoria. Beautiful beach with massive driftwood. Great for watching the seagoing traffic on Juan de Fuca strait. On the tranquil lagoon side there are many varieties of birds to enjoy. One of my favourite locations for peaceful and mindful introspection.
  • One of the most beautiful stops in Vic. I saw the northern lights there over the summer, it was magical ~
  • Pretty Sandy Beach. Not very crowded. Nice views. Clean restrooms.
  • Love this beach! Always a nice place to go for a walk or visit for the day. Awesome that they have food trucks here during the summer too
  • Amazing views and they have lots of gardens to tour. Very amazing architecture and will always find something new on every visit.
