1. The Natural Beauty

Brentwood Bay is located in the Greater Victoria region of British Columbia, and is known for its stunningly beautiful scenery. With its towering evergreen trees, picturesque mountains, and crystal-clear waters, Brentwood Bay is a nature lover's paradise. Brentwood Bay has great proximity to local parks and Gardens including Gowlland Tod Park, Mt. Work, Elk Lake, and the world Famous Butchart Gardens. It’s also close to a variety of local wineries on the Saanich Peninsula.

2. The Friendly Community

In Brentwood Bay, you'll find a tight-knit community of friendly people who are always willing to help out or chat. There's a real sense of community here, and it's one of the things that makes Brentwood Bay such a great place to live. This is probably in part due to the small size of this quiet community with a local population of approximately 5000 people compared to a population of 90,000 in downtown Victoria, and about 400,000 in the Greater Victoria area.

3. The Lively Arts Scene

Despite its small size, Brentwood Bay punches above its weight when it comes to the arts. The community is home to a number of art galleries, performance venues, and public art displays including Artverse Gallery, Staying Creative Gallery, and My Mondo Trading for a variety of contemporary, European, and Indigenous art displays.

4. The Abundance of Recreational Activities

Whether you're into hiking, biking, kayaking, or just taking a leisurely stroll, Brentwood Bay has something for everyone. There are a number of parks and trails in the area, as well as a variety of water-based activities to enjoy. Being on a Bay, there are a couple of local marina’s and a convenient car carrying ferry for easy transportation to Mill Bay and up island. Since Brentwood Bay is in the middle of the Saanich Peninsula it makes for calm salt water kayaking and paddle boarding water.

5. The Proximity to Victoria

Brentwood Bay is just a short 20 minute drive away from Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia. This makes it the perfect place to live if you want to enjoy all that Victoria has to offer while still being able to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a quieter home life in the countryside.

These are just a few of the things that make Brentwood Bay an amazing place to live. If you're looking for a community that has it all, Brentwood Bay is the perfect place for you.
