Sooke draws short and long-term guests to a select group of lodgings, many of which are B&Bs.
There is also a seaside inn and marina that features a series of luxury units, fine art, edible gardens and an acclaimed restaurant. Most accommodations here are dotted along the West Coast Road, while some can be found in nearby Port Renfrew.
Bed and breakfasts located in private homes blanket the region from Saseenos adjacent to the Sooke Basin to the French Beach/Shirley area in the west.
A selection of top-drawer Sooke-area oceanfront homes, cabins and luxury cottages are available for short and long-term rental. Pets are allowed at some properties.
Campsites and full-service RV sites are available in Sooke. French Beach Provincial Park has vehicle-accessible camping beside the ocean. In Juan de Fuca Provincial Park, China Beach's campsites offer a wilder taste of the west coast, albeit a relatively civilized one compared to the remote beach and forest wilderness sites scattered along the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. There is also a campground favored by surfers on the rocky beach at Jordan River. In Port Renfrew, hikers bound for the West Coast Trail can stay in lodges, cabins, yurts, cottages, or tents at a beachfront campground.
