Brentwood Bay

" There can be no peace, and ultimately no life, without community. "

M. Scott Peck 


The village of Brentwood Bay is located on the west side of Central Saanich nestled on the shores of the Saanich Inlet. Better known for the world renowned Butchart Gardens, this wonderful seaside community is home to 17,000 permanent residents. Brentwood Bay is also home to the Mill Bay ferry run for those wishing a scenic short cut to the Cowichan Valley without enduring the drive over the Malahat. 

Brentwood Bay is popular with boaters, canoeists, and kayakers. There are some great hiking trails in nearby Gowlland Todd Provincial Park. There is an artificial reef being developed off of Brentwood Bay attracting the interest of divers. Little known is that the Saanich Inlet has some of the best prawning available on Vancouver Island. Once you have worked up a thirst, stop by one of the many wineries in the neighbouring countryside. 

Brentwood Bay has a middle school and there are elementary and high schools in nearby Central Saanich.  Brentwood Bay is a full service community with doctors, dentists, pharmacies, several churches, grocery stores, liquor stores, and financial institutions.
