Esquimalt, with its military base (CFB Esquimalt) is almost surrounded by water, so even if you can’t afford waterfront property, you are never far from the beach.  And over the past few years Esquimalt has seen the development of several gorgeous condominium developments that have rejuvenated the east side.

View Royal is predominantly a residential community and is tucked neatly into the centre of, well, almost everything.  The Victoria General Hospital (VGH) is located in View Royal and the city of Victoria is just five or ten minutes drive.
