A renowned beauty spot just minutes from Victoria International Airport and BC Ferries Terminal at Swartz Bay, and 30 minutes from Victoria, Sidney's a natural destination for lingering.
The town boasts half a dozen hotels and motels, three inns, vacation rentals, and a seaside retreat. Sidney's volley of B&Bs runs from cozy to downright stately.
The central choice for camping is the McDonald Campground between Sidney and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. Sidney Spit, a ferry ride from town, offers walk-in wilderness campsites.
