The exquisite Cowichan Bay waterfront homes are located in the southeast part of Vancouver Island, between Nanaimo and Victoria. With historical sites, plenty of amenities, and picturesque beauty all around, Cowichan Bay waterfront living is loved by those who hope for ocean living with a unique sense of community.

Cowichan Bay Waterfront Real Estate Market

At less than an hour drive away from both Nanaimo and Victoria, the Cowichan Bay waterfront real estate market is an extremely desirable area for those looking to settle into an ocean community. Many home buyers look to Cowichan Bay for a great place to settle a family that is still easily commutable to either of the two cities.

The Cowichan Bay waterfront homes for sale overlook the stunning beauty of the Cowichan Bay, with direct access to the water. The tourist hot spot of Salt Spring Island can be seen across the water, adding another aspect of the wonderful view.

There is plenty of opportunity here as well to build the oceanside home you’ve always dreamed of. There are several available lots and oceanside developments along the shores that have underground services, sewer, and water ready to go! Choose your lot from a high bank location to ensure you never miss a sunrise or sunset.

The Highlights of Living on Cowichan Bay Waterfront

Of course, waterfront living provides many joys and activities that would otherwise be impossible, but there’s so much more to the Cowichan area.

Cowichan Bay is known for its slow and peaceful lifestyle -- so much so, that it’s actually a town initiative. It’s the first community in North America to adopt what’s called a Cittaslow lifestyle, which is a cultural trend that promotes a slower lifestyle. It has made the community a charming one with friendly people, and Nanaimo and Victoria are a great escape to enjoy a quicker pace.

This easy living community has many local business and cottage industries, such as artisan jewelry shops, historical sites, boutique clothing stores, and excellent spots to eat and enjoy while walking the docks. Organic farms and local wineries surround the town, making the good life here even sweeter. Make sure to keep your eyes on the water from your balcony view with the hopes of seeing a passing pod of whales.
