Island View is a great off leash area and a good area to explore with kids. One can choose between the beach route or a path slightly inland if it's too windy or rainy.

Great beach for walking along the ocean, either on the groomed trails or right along the shore. Sandy in some areas, stony in others. Picnic tables and restrooms. Good parking close to the beach. Dog friendly.

Turn East at Michell's Farms and come to the beach. A great spot to walk, enjoy the beach, both dog and horse friendly. Very family friendly. Great spot to watch falling stars at night and see ships passing during the day. Lots of kite surfers...More

I love walking this beach any time of year. It is a long span of beach that is protected from a lot of the winds and so it typically very calm waters and lovely for walking and sunbathing.

I enjoy the spaciousness, the beach and the grasslands. Its lovely to be there anytime of the day but sunsets are gorgeous, as are full moons and no interference with city lights. All year is relaxing to walk there.

Beautiful beach for quiet walks on even a rainy day while visiting Victoria. Clean and well kept, a natural beauty on the edge of the city, we even saw wildlife! We need to keep this one in mind for our next summer visit!
