Ogden Point Terminal & Breakwater, Victoria

4.6
#2 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Vancouver Island
Stroll along Ogden Point Terminal & Breakwater, the narrow, 850 m (half-mile) walkway that juts out into the ocean from Ogden Point. Built in 1916, the walkway was used to protect the piers, and as of 2013 the long, concrete stretch has railings, making it suitable for everyone to enjoy. You can learn about the history of the breakwater from the exhibit on shore, while also discovering interesting facts about the wildlife in the area. Walking on the breakwater, you can observe numerous ships and ferries coming into the harbor, spot seals, jellyfish, and seagulls, and admire the lighthouse at the very end of the walkway.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
