spas near victoria bcSo you’ve made it to the coast this winter for a long-term stay, and you’re looking for spas near Sidney, BC. The air is warm and humid here, even in January and February, so what better way to spend time away from the golf course in February than to seal all that healthy humidity into your pores by visiting a spa?

Sidney, the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria have it all: golfing in winter, gardens, bicycling, and plenty of cultural activities. On calm, clear days there’s even winter fishing and winter sailing.
