Sun-drenched Point Roberts has always been a favorite destination for visitors. Located just south of Vancouver BC’s metro area, Point Roberts can only be accessed through Canada or by small plane or a private boat.
The peace and quiet, forests, beaches, water and, above all, a friendly reception from the residents is what draws many tourists to Point Roberts. Today, about 900 people call the Point their home year-round.
Point Roberts is separated from the rest of Whatcom County and Washington state by 23 driving miles through British Columbia. The community is about 30 minutes by car from Vancouver and a 10-minute drive from the Tsawwassen ferry dock linking the mainland to Vancouver Island – Victoria, B.C.
Beginning in 2020, Point Roberts will also be the new home for Whidbey Island Race Week. The event will be named Point Roberts Race Week and will run July 13 – 17, 2020.
We recommend visiting Lighthouse Marine Park. This includes a full-service campground, boat ramp, picnic sites and boardwalk. Orca whales sightings are common on the west side of the Point. Two more popular parks include Lily Point Marine Park and Monument Park.
Boating is central to the life of Point Roberts. The marine atmosphere colors much of the local activity at “The Point.” A marina, yacht club and wide variety of marine services offer virtually everything a boater could need, including a headstart to the San Juans, Gulf Islands, and some of the finest fishing, sailing and cruising in the Northwest.
In addition to the outdoors, there are restaurants, taverns, a new golf course, and a quaint bed and breakfast.
