West Vancouver's spectacular coastline and mountain backdrop provide the perfect setting for this quintessential west coast city. Cross the landmark Lions Gate Bridge - originally constructed in the 1930s by Britain's Guinness family to access their vast property development known as the British Properties - and in 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, you're here!
Reward yourself with a relaxing afternoon poking around the village-like communities that make up West Vancouver.
If you're on the lookout for antiques and crafts, Ambleside is worth a try while Dundarave is known for its boutiques and galleries. Or, why not relax with a walk along Ambleside Beach or stroll the length of the seawall which connects both neighbourhoods.
Horseshoe Bay is another unique community in West Vancouver. It is the departure point for ferries to Bowen Island, Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. It's a great place to book a fishing charter, enjoy fish and chips and walk along the wharves of local marinas. The many restaurants offer ocean views, perfect for watching the coming and goings of the ferries.
