If you thought that the town of Mill Bay got its name from being a mill, you’d be absolutely correct – a lumber mill to be more specific.

Mill Bay, reached by a scenic ocean drive north of Bamberton, or the Trans Canada Highway, is now a quiet seaside community that overlooks Saanich Inlet.

Mill Bay has grown in leaps and bounds of late and nowhere is that more apparent than at the Mill Bay Marina, home to a top-notch waterfront bistro and yacht moorage.

Nearby is a full service shopping centre and kitty corner to that is Brentwood College School, home to the T. Gil Bunch Theatre and the Brentwood International Rowing Regatta.
