Oak Bay is one of the Victoria area’s most prestigious and desirable neighbourhoods nestled on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Incorporated in 1906 it boasts some of Victoria’s finest architectural homes, included many examples of Samuel Maclure and the controversial Francis Rattenbury just to name a couple. Stroll down the historic Oak Bay avenue’s boutique shops, art galleries and artisan restaurants and cafes, where you’ll always be greeted with a friendly smile or dip your toes in the ocean along the kilometres of accessible beach.
You’ll also find some of the best ocean-side golf on the island with fairway views that are guaranteed to take your eye off the ball. Prefer a little adrenaline? Get your life jacket on and hop aboard for one of the sailing race nights out of RVYC (Royal Victoria Yacht Club) or the Oak Bay Marina.
Oak Bay is also home to some of the best schools on the island. You’ll find something here for everyone.
