Unique Views!

Seems like this is my TA site to review! This lighthouse is nicely located between Clover Point & Oak Bay. The best location to see it from the land side is from the golg course.

You can see Trail Island from Clover Point and it looks amazing. You can also see it up closer if you would like. Its a beautiful light house and offers awesome mountain views.

Unsure why no one reviews this unique & iconic land mark? Nicely located in the Oak Bay area and can be seen from Clover Point!

We have travelled to this lighthouse twice this year, once on a whale watching cruise and the second time with the Clipper passenger ferry!

Trial Island Lighthouse is a wonderful landmark along the waterfront of Oak Bay. Many great viewpoints along Beach drive and Dallas road. Beach access with view at McNeil Bay. Watch boats pass through the strong currents of Enterprise Channel.

This area is well worth the visit, follow scenic drive on Dallas Drive towards Oak Bay. You will come across a great area to park your vehicle & follow the pathway so you can walk along the water. This location can be enjoyed by all ages, in the distant you will see Trial Light House.

Stroll along Beach Drive, passing the Victoria Golf Club and admire the Trail House Light House. Not sure if you can land there, but it sits in a very busy piece of sea. Sealions bark there in the summer. Whale watching boats go zooming by. Eagles fly overghead and it is in the foreground of the Olympic Mts.
