After leaving Beacon Hill Park, we continued to walk along the path above the seafront. Absolutely gorgeous, fresh walk, in October, and to be so near the water. Lots of places to park if you choose to drive. We eventually continued walking to Fisherman's Wharf.

If you love the ocean then this is the drive for you. Lots of parking to get out and enjoy the scenery. There are trails for walking that parallel the ocean and it is very relaxing. Just across the road is Beacon Hill Park - a great park to stroll around.

Lovely drive. Left Sidney, thru Brentwood Bay - Mill Bay ferry, Duncan, Sooke, then back to Sidney. Saw seals swimming, abandoned surfers cottages, lovely views. Nice beaches and picnic spots.

If you are lucky enough to visit Victoria when it's sunny out, then this is a must do walk or drive. Some amazing homes along the waterfront and on a clear day you can see across to Seattle.

We always enjoy this scenic drive around Victoria every time we visit. We normally start around government street and end up at Oak Bay marina for lunch (and feed the harbour seals). seems the seal feeding may be banned soon so made a short video before it's to late. check it out on YouTube: Milton Westy - Oak Bay Marina...

Walked most of the Victoria part of this route on a beautiful sunny Spring day. From Beacon Hill Park to the end of Dallas Drive, it's a flat, easy walk by the water. After that, you have to weave through residential areas, up and down hills, not always with a view of the sea (but the houses in Oak Bay... More

We rode the whole Marine route by bicycle- fantastic! The city of Victoria is very bicycle friendly! Easy and you get to see way more by bicycle than by car!!

This scenic drive through various neighbourhoods looking out over the ocean was a great diversion in the rain. The yards are beautiful and the homes spectacular. The route is well signed as you wend your way along the coast.
