About Ten Mile Point
Ten Mile Point is a neighbourhood located in Saanich East, British Columbia.
It is a suburb of the city of Victoria, which lies to the southwest. Downtown Victoria is located about 9.5 road kilometres away, around a 19 minute drive.
Ten Mile Point is a wooded area that is situated just east of the Cadboro Bay and Queenswood neighbourhoods. It is also the eastern most point on Vancouver Island. Its name comes from its previously notorious location ten nautical miles from what was the headquarters of the Pacific Station of the Royal Navy. Early in the 20th century, Ten Mile point became a summer retreat with many cabins along the shorelines. Gradually, the neighbourhood developed into an upscale residential location.
There are several good schools in the area including the University of Victoria which is a renowned post-secondary institution located just up the street.
