Individual Trail

South Island / Victoria West

1 min driving from Downtown Victoria

Westsong (Westbay) walkway or the Songhees walkway from Victoria inner harbour to Esquimalt is peaceful yet breathtaking. This is an hour roundtrip that you can enjoy on your own or on a first date. Fabulous for brief sunrise and sunset walks as well. You can drop by at Spinnakers for a refreshing craft beer or now by 2018 summer to drop by at the brand new Victoria international marina waterfront parlour for refreshments.

If you are wanting a more upscale atmosphere, try out Boom & Batten, a new restaurant at the marina, which is to be opened by summer 2018.

Delta Lounge, closer to downtown side of the walk, is also a good option to enjoy and chat after this walk.

GPS Notes
Most often when viewing our maps, trails marked in Green or Blue have been human-verified by our volunteers. A route in purple indicates an overgrown trail or a bushwhack. Otherwise, the tracks may have been satellite traced or imported from third party sources. While we strongly believe our GPS are accurate, please be aware that no logging system is perfect and to be aware of potential errors.
