More About Oak Bay
Known for its tree-lined namesake avenue, beautiful coastline, homes, shops, and restaurants, Oakbay reigns as one of Vancouver Island’s top tourism and business destinations. Calm waters dominate the area’s shoreline, while heritage buildings like the Fairmont Empress Hotel and evidence of ancient local settlement found along its shores like Willow Beach are a constant reminder of its rich history and culture.
Real estate and tourism is a thriving industry in Oak Bay, thanks in part to its proximity to spectacular natural settings, numerous amenities, and lively streets that draw house-hunters and visitors from all over the country and other parts of the world.
Oakbay enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a home-hunters paradise. Fancy delis, cafes, and restaurants serving the typical fish and chips and international dishes can be found in practically every nook and cranny. The coastal district is home to several hotels, fashionable boutiques, art galleries, as well as to a number of land and water businesses that offer a variety of activities like golf, yachting, kayaking, and paddleboarding.
