“Fantastic scenic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is one of my favourite trips every time I visit VI. It is best on a sunny day. Take it slowly and stop often with the camera to hand.

“Must do!”

A gorgeous drive with the most scenic views along the way! Stop at the Ocean Bay Hotel's pub for a delectable bite to eat with a million dollar view!

“Nice drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

On our way back to the airport we had time to kill so we took the scenic drive back. If you have plenty of time to spare this would be a good drive.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is always a stunning drive, whether by bike or by car. Having lived here for 10 years, I never get tired of it. Lots of hidden beaches and rocky points along the route which are beautiful for a picnic.

“Victoria Scenic Drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Victoria waterfront is a scenic drive of unsurpassed beauty. You can start at the Inner Harbour in the heart of downtown Victoria and follow the road right around the water front to the high rent district of Victoria called the Uplands. You will pass the Coho ferry dock in the harbour, the famous Rattenbury designed CPR building, Parliament Buildings, The Empress Hotel, continuing on past Fisherman's Wharf, the Coast Guard station, cruise ship dock, Ogden Point breakwater, then finally Dallas Rd itself, which was not named after the city in Texas, but after the son in law of Sir James Douglas.
Across the water is the Olympic Mt. range in the US, the city of Port Angeles Washington. You pass Beacon Hill Park, and continuing on you happen on the waterfront homes of the upscale district of Oak Bay, and then the mansions of the Uplands.
Grab yourself a map and drive the scenic waterfront route in Victoria. The scenery is simply breathtaking!
