  • Just past Fort Rood, causeway like road separates the bird sanctuary lagoon from the beach. Ample parking, seems a few vans living here, but orderly and no issue. Nice washroom and drinking fountain f...  more »

  • Nice view of the water, boats and light house.. the lighthouse wasn’t as big as I thought nor that pretty but this lagoon was a nice hidden gem. Ducks, seagulls and sea shells.  more »

  • For those of you who like long walks in the beach, Esquimalt lagoon has a long beach. It is a good place to go take pictures of the ocean and to look at the wild birds. On a nice day it's a great place for picnics and building sand castles. The bathroom is at the far end of the beach however it is clean.
  • A beautiful stretch of beach on one side and a bird sanctuary on the other side of a road that runs right through it. When I was little I called it The Road Between Two Waters. A place where you can find peace, soak up the sun or storm watch. Worth visiting.
  • I love it here! Being able to walk on the beach and cross the road to watch the birds in lagoon is a 2 for 1 experience.
  • Great place to stop and see nature you have the Pacific ocean on one side then the lagoon on the other. Wife and I took our dog for a walk there the other day and all three of us enjoyed the small adventure.
  • I often drive down to the esquimalt lagoon to peace out. I find the water so calming. I sit in my car and watch the waves and just mellow out. Im a pisces so i guess as a fish, I find water very relaxing. I find calmness and serenity when i visit there. I will continue to do so.
