Heard of Sooke? This seaside town on Vancouver Island may not be the Victoria area’s most famous – yet – but it’s certainly one of its most charming. Hosting an annual Fine Arts Festival and boasting proximity to the Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and pretty French Beach, it’s a fantastic base for all manner of outdoor adventures: everything from surfing to cycling to scuba diving to zip-lining. And Prestige Oceanfront Resort, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, is a perfect base within Sooke.
The beautiful resort sits directly on the Pacific Ocean and makes getting to the best adventuring spots a breeze. (Sooke Potholes Provincial Park, another popular sight, is just a 15-minute drive.) It’s also set up so that if you’re ever feeling lazy, you’ll still have lots to do. Stay in, and discover a pool, a hot tub, a 24-hour fitness center and a marina. Finish off your day at Vault sports bar or West Coast Grill, itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, to relish carefully prepared dishes and local wines – along with the satisfaction of having discovered one of British Columbia’s best-kept secrets.
