Mystic Beaches & the Wild Pacific
Explore Sooke & Juan de Fuca's beaches, visit Hatley Castle, find a Hidden Treasure
The West Shore of southern Vancouver Island offers cultural gems in an accessible wilderness, from world-renowned beaches to zip-line adventures to craft distilleries & casual fine-dining with breathtaking ocean views.
Prefer picnics to restaurants? Spend more time at the beach and let us arrange for an unforgettable, west-coast feast by Spirit Culinary Excursions (spiritculinaryexcursions.com).
Here are a few of our favourite casual fine-dining destinations:
Glenrosa Farm (http://www.glenrosafarmrestaurant.com/) is a small, working farm, rich in local & pioneer-family history. Local produce for the restaurant is grown on-site, including 100+ year old heritage-varietal fruit trees.
Point No Point Resort (pointnopointresort.com) is a great place to get away from it all! Your table is equipped with binoculars for whale-watching, and their talented chefs are sure to delight with their creative and unique use of locally sourced organic foods.
Sooke Harbour House (SookeHarbourHouse.com) is one of Vancouver Island's most unique, award-winning resorts, offering unique guest rooms, fine dining, and spa services.
