Sun, sand and surf – Victoria has them all! Find myriad scenic and clean beaches along the coastal shoreline. There are inland lakes, streams and swimming holes aplenty, too.

Some beaches have a variety of facilities, while others offer nothing more (or less) than pristine water in idyllic natural surroundings.

For a family outing near lots of conveniences, visit Willows Beach or Cadboro Gyro Beach. For more natural surroundings, try Island View Beach Regional Park or Sooke Potholes Provincial Park.
