Bowen Island, with a population of 3,362, is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. The quiet, forested island of 52 square kilometers / 20 square miles lives up to its slogan of Within reach. Beyond comparison. Water lovers enjoy kayaking around Bowen Islands sheltered bays, swimming at sandy beaches, and mooring their boats at local marinas. And, from mighty Mount Gardner to the shores of Killarney Lake, hiking and mountain biking offer both hilly challenges and pure relaxation. Shopping and dining await a short stroll from the ferry in Snug Cove. Dilly-dally happily with artwork, jewelry, fair-trade goods, and Mediterranean and west coast food in Village Square, Artisan Square, and the Marina on the Pier.
Every morning, you will be served a vegetarian continental breakfast which will be delivered right to your doorstep.
