Welcome to Magical Mechosin

A rural seaside community

I may be a little biased, but Metchosin is truly a special place to live and play. Winding country roads lead you to this quaint community,  just minutes away from all amenities but seemingly, a far away land. The stunning beaches to the forest trails, the natural surroundings are truly breathtaking. Whether you’re looking for a little more space or a large acreage, farms dot the countryside,  everything from ocean front to secluded forest retreats are waiting to welcome you. Grab your morning coffee coupled with a “Broken Egger” breakfast sandwich to go, at The Broken Paddle Coffeehouse and head out for an afternoon floating on Matheson Lake, or hike through Metchosin Wilderness Park. Afterwards,  you can even catch a sunset horseback ride on the beach at, Weir. Sunday’s are for the Metchosin Farmers Market, where you can load up on local produce, meats, and other delicious items, plus custom designed housewares.  


Metchosin is Located in the Western Communities, known as the “West Shore” of Greater Victoria. It is bordered by By Langford to the North, Colwood to the East, The Straight of Juan De Fuca and the Salish Sea to the South, and Sooke and East Sooke to the West.
