Major sea wall reconstruction will impinge your ambience and walk.
Jul 2020
Under 'normal' circumstances I would have left a 5* review of Dallas Road. So? Right now the whole of Dallas Road is going through a major upgrade, especially the sea wall on the south side.

It will take you FAR longer to drive through the Road's entirety if you go right now. The construction that is going on at the moment can take many more months to complete. When it does I am sure all will be well rewarded, but to wait this long?

I had to use my eyes ONLY to see if there was a spot free on the north side of the road where construction did not seem to be happening. Or using a side street where I could safely and legally park. I was in search for areas where dogs could swim on the smooth pebbled beaches. Not great I have to admit, but was heaven to see my girl run up and down the beach.

Lovely walk to explore the quieter part of Victoria
Sep 2019
Did this walk to explore some of the quieter side of Victoria. Take the path from Fisherman's wharf and follow the coastline. A well made path all the way and stunning views out to sea and the wildlife & bird life there . Loved all the older style wooden buildings along this route Lots of park benches on the way to sit and enjoy views or enjoy a picnic. We turned off at the world largest totem pole and cut back through the stunning Beacon Hill Park , Great way to spend a few hours in the sunshine

a must do car ride
Nov 2019
A sunset drive along Cadboro Bay Rd./Beach Drive/Dallas Road is s regular feature of life in this beautiful city. I like to travel this lovely scenic road starting at Cadboro Bay, near the University of Victoria, veering left onto Beach Dr. through The Uplands, a sharp left at Hollywood Cres, will bring you to Dallas Rd. and through to The Breakwater. about a 25 minute drive with only one stop sign, though estate property, a golf course, sighting marinas and lighthouses, beaches, the ocean in sight on your left for most of the way. Stunning!

Quiet Oasis in a big city
Jun 2019 • Couples
Many locals we talked to recommended Dallas Road's walk along the water during our vaction. It was worth it: sea, sky, pebble beach, driftwood, paved paths, all on a dry, sunny, cool-breeze day. This was a quiet retreat from big city movement. Enjoyed it immensely!

Stunning!

Came across the beach by accident as I crossed to the trail from the totem. Such a beautiful spot to sit and watch the sea and tide, and watch people enjoy the evening sun. So easy to relax and lose track of time. Definitely worth taking the time to take a stroll and enjoy the amazing views out to sea, the harbour and further afield.
Also worth walking down to spiral beach and finlayson point too, for more amazing views.

Spectacular view
Jun 2019 • Couples
When I was a teenager I used to play softball near Clover Point, on the grassy field between Dallas Road and the beach, which the good hitters could occasionally reach on the fly. That counted as a home run. A good part of the field has been given over to another purpose, but the beach is still there, ready for hikers wearing sturdy shoes. Less adventurous types can walk along the cliff. Where the cliff is higher you will sometimes find wind surfers. The view over the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which some now call the Salish Sea, is spectacular, especially when the Olympics are not obscured by clouds. Spend some time here: you’ll enjoy yourself.

good place to throw rocks and smell salt air
Apr 2019
sadly every where seems to be an off leash area to let pit bulls and mangy canines run free. we were fascinated by a large otter eating a crab on the quiet rocky shore when yet another scary looking dog appeared. i am sure it was a lovely friendly animal but wasnt going to risk a child to find out.

Wonderful beach walk along the wild coast
Jun 2018 • Couples
If you want to get away from the bustle and tourists of downtown Victoria (because there's nothing tourists hate more than other tourists), the beach beneath Dallas Road is an excellent place to go. You get the wind blowing across the Salish Sea, with views of the Olympic Mountains across the water. Kelp washes up along the pebbly beach, though it can be strenuous to walk because you do sink into the polished stones. It's also an exceptional place to see some glacial geology from the last Ice Age. Bedrock are outcrops of glacially scoured stone covered by glacial till and silt. Compared to the adorable, cultured, manicured Britishness of downtown Victoria and Beacon Hill Park, Dallas Road Beach is powerful and wild.

The scenery is spectacular
Mar 2019 • Friends
This is a several kilometer walk each way. A bit of construction going on but oh well, the current mayor of Victoria seems to want to waste so much money on fixing things that are not broken. Besides all that, its a great walk in a beautiful area. If you have the time and the energy, its an easy swing over to Beacon Hill park. Short walk up to Cook Street Village as well. This area is one of my favorite goto spots in the city. I can go for a relaxing walk along the water or go own to the water, the park, Cook St, Just go. Dallas Rd is the connector to dozens of the best spots the city has to offer.
