A pop­u­lar va­ca­tion home lo­ca­tion, Bowen Is­land of­fers the best of all worlds.

Its idyl­lic is­land life­style at­tracts artists, ar­ti­sans and writ­ers, in ad­di­tion to a va­ri­ety of pro­fes­sion­als and stu­dents who com­mute to of­fices and schools on the nearby Van­cou­ver main­land ev­ery day.

Home to a mul­ti­tude of wildlife, from bald ea­gles to dol­phins and whales, the is­land is far away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Van­cou­ver, yet it’s only a 20-minute ferry ridge from West Van­cou­ver’s Horse- shoe Bay — the is­land is ac­tu­ally part of the Van­cou­ver Re­gional Dis­trict. The is­land is about six kilo­me­tres long and 12 kilo­me­tres wide and is home to 3,400 full-time res­i­dents dur­ing the win­ter. In the sum­mer, the pop­u­la­tion ex­pands to roughly 5,000.
