Dallas Road - Clover Point
Difficulty: Easy - Family
Dallas Road is a sightseeing walking route located along the waterfront of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada on Vancouver Island.
The waterfront route is a popular summer pathway ideal for walking, jogging, biking, picnicking and roller blading. Many paved sections of the route are baby stroller and wheelchair friendly as well.
During the winter months the pathway is also a lookout point for watching storms and crashing waves.
The Dallas Road waterfront connects to Beacon Hill Park and continues along sidewalks and side streets to an area of Victoria called Oak Bay and some sandy beaches.
While exploring along the waterfront there are, usually, many opportunities to view marine and sporting activities. Some of the activities enjoyed on the waterfront ocean playground include kite surfing, kayaking, scuba diving and kite flying.
Being that the walkway is open to the coastline elements it is always wise to prepare for strong winds and exposure to sunshine as there are stretches of the pathway which provide very little shade.
Located along the Dallas Road waterfront are areas with sightseeing benches and access to stairs leading down to the rocky and sandy coastline. Some of the marine sightseeing includes cruise ships coming and going and sail boats and yachts cruising on by.
Located along Dallas Road are some areas with angle parking. This is convenient on days where the weather is not cooperating as one can watch storms from the comfort of their vehicle.
