Map of West Vancouver

Welcome to West Vancouver!

Accessible via the Lions Gate Bridge, West Vancouver is only minutes from downtown Vancouver, at the base of the North Shore mountains. Comprised of over 30 village-like communities, most of which are stamped along the coastline, West Vancouver is very much an urbanite's paradise disguised in an unlikely setting. The community of Ambleside, a playground for socialites, attracts people with its trendy shops, posh restaurants and happening bars. Heading northwest along the coast, Dundarave is home to some interesting boutiques and an enclave of antique stores. Heading further up the coast visitors are sure to stop at Lighthouse Park, which contains Canada's oldest manned lighthouse. Once in Horseshoe Bay—the gateway to Bowen Island, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island—be sure to peruse the inviting waterfront shops and cafes, and take in the spectacular sunsets over the water. A visit to Horseshoe Bay Park is sure to yield many photo opportunities and is a popular place to enjoy a stroll along the gravel beach.
