Victoria

Victoria is a fishing village filled with antiques, art galleries, and handicrafts shops, but its real beauty is that it has retained its peace and integrity. The little shops and eateries are owned by local people. Many of the artists and craftspeople who live here do so to escape the hectic life of larger centers. To truly appreciate Victoria, park on one of its several narrow streets and take a walk: browse the shops, watch the fishing boats beside the wharf, admire the harbor lighthouses, and take time to chat with the locals.
