Ella Beach is located only a few kilometers west of downtown Sooke on Hwy. 14. A very short path leads from the roundabout parking lot to this stony beach overlooking Sooke Bay. This beach is one of the favourites with locals. Seals and sealions may be witnessed from the shore as well as many types of ocean birds and eagles. It is a sheltered cove and provides a good location for sunset photos in the Sooke Region.
