Sidney

Thirty kilometers north of Victoria, you will find a small, charming seaside community. Sidney or as it prefers to be called now, Sidney By The Sea. The town of Sidney, in the province of British Columbia, was incorporated as a town in 1967.

Located on the North Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island, Sidney has a growing population of 11,000 residents. With its incredible views of the Gulf and San Juan Islands, it is easy to see why Sidney has become such a popular destination for tourists or even for permanent relocation. Having the BC Ferry Terminal at Swartz Bay and the Victoria International Airport only minutes away from Sidney, makes this a stress free area to get to and explore.
Strolling through Sidney is an absolute delight. It has a small town feel and charm to it. When strolling on main street there is a variety of galleries, restaurants and bookstores. In fact, Sidney is also known as "Booktown". 
With nine bookstores that specialize in different genres, it is a browsers dream. Downtown Sidney takes on a carnival like atmosphere on Thursday evenings from June to September, as the main street is transformed into a Summer Market. If fresh seafood is what you desire, head straight down Beacon Avenue to the fish market on the Pier and pick some up.
Sidney's waterfront is such a beautiful, peaceful walk. Stroll to the Centennial Bandstand to hear some music, watch a sailboat regatta, go explore the modern expansive marina. Sidney actually has the largest concentration of marinas on Vancouver Island, which makes it popular with boaters up and down the coast. Visit the Sidney Marine Museum or tour the Institute of Ocean Sciences. Biking, kayaking, tennis, golfing, boat charters, diving, moorage...Sidney really has it all. Whether you drive or boat to Sidney, be prepared for a warm welcome and some lasting memories.
