Welcome to Bowen Island, British Columbia!

Since the early 1900's, Bowen Island has been a favourite destination for Vancouverites looking for a quiet retreat or a place to get together with friends. Bowen Island is also a popular destination for boaters who wish to experience sheltered bays and safe anchorage, tourists looking for clean swimming beaches and residents interested in a rural community-oriented lifestyle.
