A diverse community mere minutes from Victoria's downtown, the Township of Esquimalt was incorporated in 1912 and comprises approximately 2,485 acres of land and water that carry significant meaning in its history and in the lifestyles of its residents.
This established area can be a great choice for people of all ages. Much of it is filled with single-family homes on nice lots, but in recent years newer condo developments have spread throughout the area, and on some quiet no-thru streets near the water you’ll find clusters of newer homes built in the last 10 years–Saxe Point in particular being a popular and desirable area with beautiful, larger homes near the water. Buyers are constantly renovating older homes throughout the neighbourhood as the price point can be more attractive to young families or first-time buyers.
Derived from a local First Nations expression Es-whoy-malth, meaning "the place of gradually shoaling water", Esquimalt sits in the heart of the Capital Regional District on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in the Canadian province of British Columbia, just four kilometres west of the City of Victoria.
It is the home of Canada’s naval presence on the West Coast, first used by the Royal Navy as early as 1837. The original Esquimalt townsite has long since disappeared within the boundaries of the Canadian Forces Base (now the community’s largest employer), but from the West Bay Marina you can stroll local-side along the West Bay Walkway, a promenade that runs directly over the famed blue bridge into Downtown.
