Sleepy little Point Roberts, Washington, is the most appealing resort community in the Vancouver, B.C. area - and probably it's the best kept secret! It captures the spirit of an earlier time, one of friendliness, open spaces, fresh air and good old fashioned fun.


Just five square miles in size, "the Point" as locals call it, is a peninsula that is attached to the Canadian mainland at the top of the Georgia Strait with spectacular views of the San Juan and Gulf Islands. Surrounded three sides by water, Point Roberts is rimmed with beaches and offers miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, a world class marina, an 18 hole golf course, a variety of dining and shoppingchoices, an art gallery, and four state parks. Our small population also includes eagles, orca whales, seabirds, bunnies, and other benign wildlife. Conveniently located just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver and ten minutes from the ferry to Vancouver Island/Victoria and Nanaimo. In the winter months skiing is only 45 minutes away, and Whister is just under 2 hours away.


Getting to the Point is easy. Visitors and locals utilize Vancouver International Airport (YVR - 25 mins) and Bellingham International (BLI - about 45 to an hour, depending on border traffic) and there is an airstrip, which is serviced from Bellingham. We do have a border to cross to enter Point Roberts, so passports are required. Those who wish to come by sea will find the MArina has slips for visitors, and US Customs will come to the dock to clear international visitors.
