Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a gem of this place is in the Uplands part of Victoria. About a 15 minute drive out of Victoria city. One of the ever so helpful girls at Spinnakers Guesthouses recommended this place to me whilst staying overnight there. She was even so helpful to show me this location on the maps Spinnakers offer you.

My primary goal was to find a dog friendly beach in the Victoria area. I went on a cool and sunny, summer's morning. My girl loved swimming in the sea and then coming back, dropping the stick I threw for her and watch hopelessly as she rolled around in the sand. There IS AN OFFICIAL dog beach area which welcomed many dog areas.

As you drive up NE in the Saanich area you will come across a cute Starbucksm an optometry and few other stores. Great for kids, families, couples, solo, like me and my ChocoLab! It is as mentioned above a sandy beach so be prepared to clean up!

I have a picture of my Aunt many years ago with a tent behind her shooting a rifle at Cadboro Bay. It sure is different now! My grandparents lived down the road and we used to walk the beach nightly. Great place for children to play, awesome for family picnics. Just a wonderful all around place to spend time.

Beautiful natural beach in a calm setting. I used to go here to clear my head when I was studying at the university up the hill. Now I’m a Grampa enjoying this jewel of Victoria.

Cadboro Bay is a cute little beach community in Saanich. Don’t let the ugly mustard paint in the village turn you away. The bay is beautiful. There is a nice park and benches to use, too.

Lots of sand and warmish waters, plus a great playground for children and picnic area for families. A small shopping village is adjacent where you can pick up all you need for your picnic by the sea.

This is a spot where we take our grandsons to play. There are numerous structures to play on, an octopus, whales, rocks, a big ship, and best of all, a zip-line. It is very popular with the locals. There is plenty of free parking, picnic tables, and washrooms.

Great spot for sunbathing or taking the kids to play on the grass or the animal structures. I go for the All Japanese car show as I work for Honda and like to see previous customers and some crazy cars.
