To celebrate the arrival Velletta & Company as the newest law firm to the Cordova Bay area, we’ve prepared this list of our favourite attractions in the neighbourhood. We love providing professional counsel to clients in Victoria, BC, but when our team of lawyers are not practicing law, you can likely find at least some of us at one of these.
Cordova Bay Beach
Cordova Bay Beach is a long, sandy beach scattered with logs that have washed ashore, and a great spot for kids because of both pebble and sandy shores. It’s a beautiful spot for a beach walk after a visit to the Beach House Restaurant, paddleboarding, swimming and lounging in the sun in summer. People of all ages can be see wandering the beautiful shores year-round. The beach can be accessed by a set of stairs next to the restaurant. This is a sunny spot for swimming as well, due to the shallowness of the waters.
The BEach House Restaurant
This restaurant, so perfectly located right on the shore of beautiful Cordova bay Beach, boasts stunning west coast design and exceptional west coast contemporary fare.
The Beach House Restaurant began as an ice cream stand and general store in the early 1920s and evolved into a hot spot for dining and dancing in the 1940s.
It is a comfortably elegant setting for a romantic dinner, weekend brunch, a casual lunch with friends, or to celebrate a special corporate or family event.
Located in the heart of Cordova Bay, Mattick’s Farm has been a Victoria landmark since the mid-1940’s but today is a unique shopping experience.
It’s a favourite destination for both locals and tourists alike, who come for a relaxing visit in a stylish atmosphere, a casual lunch, afternoon tea, or an intriguing browse through unique shops. There’s fresh local produce, a spa, mini golf, wine shop, and more—truly an experience for the senses.
The 29-kilometer Lochside Trail trail is great for walking or biking, stretching from Swartz Bay to Victoria past beaches, farmland, wetlands, down country lanes and beside suburban backyards. The trail has a more civilized personality than its more wild cousin (the Galloping Goose Regional Trail). The trail surface is wide (3 to 6 metres) and mostly flat.
Cordova Bay Golf Course
Cordova Bay Golf Course is a public 18-Hole championship golf course, recognized as a “world champion golf destination” by Golf Canada Magazine, and rated one of the top-100 women-friendly golf courses in North America.
