Visit the nearby Saratoga Speedway, located on the scenic Island Highway. The 3/8 mile Baby “D” shaped track was designed from the Daytona track.

Saratoga celebrated its 30th year last year and is ranked as one of the finest tracks in the province. The pit area inside the racing surface allows spectators to view their favourites preparing their cars for the next event.

Bracket Drag Racing every other weekend, staged by the Island Drag Racing Association. Outdoor Concerts have become commonplace, with spectators enjoying an up-close view and fantastic acoustics.

And so much more…

Shelter Point Distillery

Established in 2011, Shelter Point Distillery is located on 380 acres in Oyster River, BC, about halfway up the eastern coast of Vancouver Island.

Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island. We are naturally blessed with the key ingredients of exceptional handcrafted artisan spirits: fertile fields to grow our barley, a large underground aquifer to provide naturally filtered water and crisp sea air compliments of the Salish Sea.

Add in our skilled craftspeople, traditional Scottish distilling methods and state-of-art facility, and the result is a world-class distillery on the West Coast of Canada.

Drop in, do some tasting, take a tour or visit the gift shop to get some ‘spirited gifts’ to enjoy at home.

Coastal Black Distillery

Coastal Black is a family owned and operated fruit winery and meadery. All our wines are hand-crafted on site with our own berries and honey. Come for a visit and enjoy a tasting and pizza!

Our own Brick Oven Italian Style Pizza is now open for the summer season! Please, come join us for lunch and wine.We would love to welcome EVERYONE through our doors at Coastal Black

But being a winery, we are more of an adult oriented environment. We don’t mind families coming and bringing children, we simply ask that they be respectful of the other patrons and try to maintain the relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. Also because the Winery is more adult focused, we don’t have child specific amenities (ie: juice, highchairs, toys etc) so please be aware of this as well.
