Watch our video itineraries as we explore Sidney, British Columbia for two days.   We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in this seaside town – just outside the boundaries of lovely Victoria – British Columbia’s capital city. We loved the several kilometer walkway along the ocean and browsing the small locally owned shops.

As a midway point between Victoria and the BC Ferries terminal in Swartz Bay, Sidney might not capture your attention. But this quaint seaside community has a lot going for it.

To discover its lovely secrets, one must cultivate a sense of curiosity. Your reward? Idyllic and secluded beach access, interesting museums, fewer crowds at attractions, and yes, easy proximity to BC’s Capital City, Victoria. []
