Got a few hours free to spend on the beach. Head on the little island ferry to Sidney Island and Sidney Spit. In the Summer there's an ice cream vendor and occasionally a hot dog stand but it's best to pack drinks and food. It's one of the favourite spots for the local dolphins to appear but there's no guarantee of that. Ferry times are on the board on the Pier next to the Pier Bistro. Plan to be there at least 2 hours. 3.5km or a 7 minute drive away.

Usually lots of celebs on the course and in the bars- in the Summer mostly hockey players. 33.4km or a 34 minute drive away.

Sports facility? Well it's a five-pin bowling centre in downtown Sidney and it's a lot of fun. Note it's not ten-pin. If anything it's easier for the family with the smaller balls.
