Gordon’s Beach

Ocean Vista

“Pull off the West Coast Road just after Otter Point rd. amidst the row of colorful beachfront cottages in the Gordon’s Beach/Otter Point/Tugwell Creek area about 15 minutes west of Sooke. Then sit on a chunk of salt-stained driftwood and watch the waves pound rocks to sand or gaze in awe at the windsurfers and sail boast that drift past.”
