Horseshoe Bay

Nestled quietly away from the rest of West Vancouver, with its main traffic sources passing through to the Sea-to-Sky Highway or onto ferries to Nanaimo, Bowen Island, and Langdale, Horseshoe Bay is a relaxing seaside retreat. Only about 1,000 permanent residents live in the area, and its main attractions are unspoiled nature. Whytecliff Park in particular is a world away from busy city beaches, with its tranquil, rocky coastline serving as a sanctuary for hundreds of marine animals. Affordable boat rentals from Horseshoe Bay’s marina are the perfect way to explore the islands of Howe Sound and multiple parks in the area that can only be reached via water. If you need to stay in touch with the world during your escape, don’t fret—most of the area has cell phone service.
