A busy, but enjoyable anchorage. Despite being open to the southeast, it is fairly well protected on the southwest side. When approaching your anchorage, beware of paddleboarders, swimmers, and kayakers. Ashore, a short walk (less than two hundred metres) brings you to a somewhat pricey grocery store, a pharmacy, frequent bus service to downtown Victoria or UVIC on the 11, several restaurants, coffee shops, a pet supply store - you name it, it's here... for a price. On summer nights, the beach can be a bit of a party spot, and leaving your dinghy is not advisable. Beware of the extensive mud tidal flats at low tide.

  • Right off the beach is a grocer, pharmacy, coffee shop, pet supply store, thai restaurant (highly recommended), and bus access to downtown. A short bus ride of bike ride away are better groceries.
  • Gyro Park at Cadboro Bay is one of Victoria's most popular beaches.
  • While Oak Bay is slow to catch on to making roads safe for cyclists, the area is scenic, for a ride and ten minutes of cycling will get you to Home Depot and Thrifty Foods.
  • The roads around Gyro Park lackc sidewalks, but Mystic Vale at UVIC and Teleggraph Cove are both under a kilometre from the beach.
