Brentwood Bay Travel Guide
Welcome to Brentwood Bay!The quiet village of Brentwood Bay rests on Vancouver Island's Saanich Peninsula and overlooks the Saanich Inlet, a body of water that provides a scenic backdrop as well as a stage for water-based activities. Sail or paddle the sheltered waters, or dive into its depths to explore the artificial reef forming in the bay or the natural treasures at Tod Inlet. Take in this seaside panorama from the Brentwood Bay Seawall and at Gowlland Tod Provincial Park with miles of trails that ascend to spectacular lookouts.
Brentwood Bay is part of the Central Saanich municipality within the Greater Victoria Region. Just a 20-minute drive from downtown Victoria, it is home to several main area attractions, namely Butchart Gardens. Nearby, the Victoria Butterfly Gardens, is enchanting for children of all ages, and the Church and State Winery lures adults with wine tastings throughout the year. Indeed, Brentwood Bay is for those who enjoy the finer things in life, home to exceptional restaurants, marinas and spas, such as found at the Brentwood Bay Resort. In the summer, the Brentwood Bay Festival celebrates the arts and Music in the Park presents a civilized (and fun) way to bask in the summer sun. All of this is offered from Brentwood Bay's central location, only 10 minutes from the Victoria International Airport and 20 minutes from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. Brentwood Bay also has its own ferry service that travels to Mill Bay.
Featuring 55 acres of floral finery and spectacular views along the paths and expansive lawns, the Butchart Gardens are a Victoria landmark and as of 2004, a National Historic Site of Canada.
