Just a short drive from downtown Vancouver
, West Vancouver is superbly located between the sea and the mountains, offering panoramic 180-degree views. Many of its streets are like country lanes, meandering along seashore paths to numerous tranquil, deserted beaches. Just ask one of the locals how to find them.
The area also offers the lovely beaches of Ambleside and Dundarave, connected by a seawall. Lighthouse Park, located at the entrance of the harbour, boasts 185 acres and 8 miles of nature trails through old growth forests. Rugged bluffs on the Park's coastline offer spectacular views of Vancouver and Howe Sound. Watch bald eagles, sea otters, waterfowl and seals. Travel along Marine Drive for vistas, harbours & secluded coves.
There are more than a dozen Cities in Metropolitan Vancouver BC.
