It is located on Cowichan Lake in the southeastern part of Vancouver Island — approximately 75 kilometres (47 mi) northwest of Victoria — at 48°49′N 124°10′W / 48.817°N 124.167°W / 48.817; -124.167.[1] In 2011, its population was listed at 580.[2]

Historically, its main industry has been forestry.

Many years ago a lonely young bachelor in this area announced he would return to England to find a bride. The community took the name Honeymoon Bay as a result but he never returned.[3]:114
