Sooke Neighbourhood: East Sooke
Jutting out into the Sooke Basin and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the peninsula of East Sooke is often called "Nature's Gallery".
You're never far from nature in East Sooke. Funky cabins, modest homes on large lots, relatively affordable waterfront, mountaintop estates with stunning vistas, and the largest park in the region, it's all there in East Sooke.
While some of East Sooke is part of the District of Sooke, most of it is an unincorporated area administered by the Capital Regional District, much like Otter Point.
Many people move to East Sooke to get away from the urban centres of the south Island, yet still be within a half-hour's drive to 'civilization.' East Sooke is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.
With a long coastline, East Sooke has the most affordable waterfront properties on southern Vancouver Island. Mostly fronting on Sooke Basin, many have protected deep water access, perfect for your very own dock. Easy access to the Strait of Juan de Fuca to set out on your sailing adventure or to experience world-class salmon and halibut fishing.
Even if you're not living on the waterfront, there is plenty of public access to the water from regional parks such as Roche Cove or East Sooke Park. Launch your canoe or kayak for a peaceful paddle on the Basin or an adventurous float on the Strait.
East Sooke is very hilly and rocky, and as such a level, useable acreage is rare, but they do come up from time to time. Some of the rocky mountain-top homes have the most stunning views you'll ever see.
There is plenty of undeveloped land in East Sooke for sale, including affordable waterfront, ocean and mountain view lots. Experienced local builders are available to help turn your dream home into a reality.
One big bonus of living in East Sooke is that much of it is protected for posterity as East Sooke Regional Park. Almost all of the south and western coastline of the East Sooke peninsula is part of the park, ensuring local residents and visitors alike can experience the splendour of the coast in its natural state. Many properties border the park, with public access to this huge area at different points. There are approximately 50km of hiking trails in the park, with the 10km rugged Coast Trail, and several switch-backing mountain trails leading to gorgeous vistas. East Sooke Park is so large that even when the parking lot is full, it's not hard to "get lost" for a day and feel like you're the only one in the park.

Check out this YouTube video I found of East Sooke Park. It gives a good idea of what to expect out there, and has some pretty funny commentary from its creator.
