We drove around and loved the scenic area. The only thing was the entrance to the beach was full of people with addiction. They still were very respectable and did not bother us much further.

No visit to Victoria will be complete without driving the southern coastline, from Ogden Point to Cattle Point. Takes approx 30 mins., and the memory will last forever.

You can dirve the route by car or take a bike. It is really worthwhile to spend the time and to stop at the many different spots to take a photo, sit at the beach, or simple enjoy the different views.

We were amazed with the views, but also amazed with the houses on the road scenic route. If you like architecture old or new this is a must do route. Some of the houses were historic and some others with spectacular gardens.
