Victoria West

Victoria West is the booming luxury area just a short skip and a jump from Downtown Victoria. Thousands of condominium units have been built, and thousands more are to come.

The area is popular for its Songhees Walkway, which offers a stunning oceanfront pathway all the way from Esquimalt to Downtown Victoria. The new Victoria Superyacht Marina features a popular restaurant and cafe, Boom & Batten. Further down, you’ll find a charming pub called Spinnakers.

This is a paradise for bicyclists. New separated bike lanes on Harbour Road connect to the Galloping Goose. The bike path extends across the Johnson Street bridge and connects to the Pandora, Wharf, and Fort street bike lanes. Offering a safe and pleasant journey to work.

The area offers many parks, amenities, and everyday shopping. There’s a reason why this is the #1 community for dog ownership according to City of Victoria dog license data. Urbanites love walking their dogs along the waterfront, or in the many green pocket parks.
