More About Malahat & Area
Further out into the country is this vast region of mature forests and steep cliffs that nests sparse communities offering an all-natural charm.
Settle in areas with stunning lake views and aquatic leisure activities in the community of Shawnigan Lake just to the North of Malahat proper. Enjoy the dramatic and eye-catching view of the Saanich Peninsula and the Gulf Islands along the Malahat Drive or an immaculate shoreline just at the northern end of the drive in the community of Mill Bay. Further away is the Cowichan Valley famed for its majestic coastal plain, river deltas, and watersheds and home to a growing number of vineyards and wineries.
Less pollution, an abundance of plants and trees, and better air quality add to the serene appeal of the region. Malahat is not just for those who seek a place out of the hustle and bustle of the city but also for those who seek to improve their health.
