The peaceful, pine-clad Bowen Island is populated by just over three thousand, proudly proclaiming their home as “Within Reach. Beyond Comparison”. Although just a mere twenty minutes from Vancouver by ferry, it seems like an island far removed, with unspoilt forests, winding rivers and quiet coves around every corner.
Bowen boasts a fully flourished arts scene as well, with the Arts Pacific Gallery showcasing various brilliant sculptures and paintings. But it isn’t without its thrilling outdoor activities. The hilly terrain offers superb mountain biking and hiking, whilst the myriad lakes and streams are ideal for refreshing dips and kayaking adventures with the family.
Given its proximity to the Canadian mainland, Bowen Island is well served by ferry and extremely easy to reach, with over a dozen sailings available every day from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver.
