Voice of BC's Professional Bed & Breakfast Industry

Mill Bay is a charming seaside village located on the southeast shore of Vancouver Island, just 40 km (25 mi) north of Victoria. Mill Bay is a haven for artists, boaters and those who appreciate the quieter side of life. The village can either be reached via a spectacular stretch of the Trans Canada Highway called the Malahat drive, or across the Saanich Inlet on “the Island’s most beautiful shortcut” a BC Ferries crossing from Brentwood Bay. Dotted with hill-top and ocean-side homes, Mill Bay’s tranquil town centre features an array of shops and services, including galleries, specialty stores and the Mill Bay shopping Centre. The village boasts gorgeous views of the Gulf Islands, and is surrounded by parks, wineries, and beautiful channels well-known for boating and salt-water fishing. The long, sandy stretch of Mill Bay Beach is a scenic and popular spot for swimming and basking in the sunshine. Bamberton Provincial Park is also a superb location for hiking and swimming, as well as camping. Ask your Mill Bay Bed and Breakfast B&Bkeepers about the International Brentwood Rowing Regatta at the end of April, a weekend of action-packed racing and entertainment at the second largest high school rowing Regatta in North America.
