Tsawwassen is a small community resting on the northern end of the peninsula located on the west coast of Canada, laying near the coast of the United States. Many ferry routes depart the port, crossing to other ports belonging to the US and Canada.
Against the exponential growth of the technological world, Tsawwassen is like travelling back to simpler times; a bird sanctuary is the most famous attraction, the houses display an authentically Canadian heritage and the main pastimes for locals and visitors are traversing the hillside on two wheels or embarking on a hike up one of the challenging walking trails. For a more leisurely stroll, Centennial Beach affords a picturesque view of the expanding horizon, as well as picnic facilities and opportunities for a friendly game of beach volleyball. Make sure you head there when the weather is desirable – the surrounding water can create a frosty chill on the cooler days.
Hiking and mountain biking offer adventure for the adrenaline junkies, but for those who prefer to explore on water, windsurfing has become part of the coastline’s make-up; locals will inform you of the best times to set sail on the beautiful Boundary Bay. After a tiring day in the great outdoors, try out one of the fine restaurants, typically serving seafood as the speciality dish.
The town is very small and can easily be covered on bike or on foot.
