Bowen Island sits at the mouth of Howe Sound nestled between the mainland (Vancouver) and the Sunshine Coast. The island has long been a go-to destination for Vancouverites seeking a getaway into their rugged natural surroundings.
The approximately 3,500 year-round residents enjoy an island life community rich in the arts. Outdoor recreation activities abound with ample space to explore Bowen Island on foot, bike or boat. With regular ferry service to the mainland many residents as well as students make the daily 20-minute commute to the city. The ideal location makes Bowen Island a place where one can really enjoy the best of both worlds.
