Bowen Island Travel Guide

Just a 20-minute boat trip from Vancouver lies one of the most sought-after day trip destinations in British Columbia. Bowen Island is an excellent getaway for any time of the year. When was the last time you’ve walked through the woods on a rainy day? Or sat on a beach and watched a storm blow by? A small idyllic island located in Howe Sound, Bowen Island boasts a lot more than just nature. There are funky little shops, artisanal dessert cafes, romantic dinner spots, yoga studios, and more. If you’re looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver, a trip to Bowen Island makes for an excellent day trip.

Things to Do in Bowen Island

While on Bowen Island, rent a kayak and paddle around the sound. You’ll have tons of jaw-dropping 360-degree views, and you’ll work up quite the sweat too. Drive over to the west side of the island to explore the undeveloped pristine beaches and the Roger Curtis Lighthouse. For options on where to eat, check out Barcelona restaurant, Tapas and Tuscany, for Italian food.

Have you ever wanted to practice yoga in a geodesic dome in the middle of the woods? Even if it hasn’t crossed your mind, head over to Nectar Yoga B&B for an other-wordly zen experience. And for the art junkies, head over to Arts Pacific Gallery, Bowen Heritage, or Catching Stars Gallery for some excellent window shopping.
