Sailing north out of Vancouver, we passed Point Atkinson Lighthouse in Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. I made a nice scenic point of reference against English Bay, Howe Sound, and across to Vancouver Island. We learned that Point Atkinson was first established in 1792 by...More

We go by this landmark every time we go out on the boat. It’s always a great lighthouse to photograph. The currents in front can be quite wicked so be aware of tide changes. We’ve had some very large vessels with experienced captains have green...More

Access to this lighthouse is thru the Lighthouse park in West Vancouver. It is a short and easy 45 min walk. A search for the hidden bunker will make your walk even more adventurous.

Were recommended to go here by a friend. Enjoyable walk but access to the lighthouse is closed so you basically get to the house of the people that maintain the property and that's it

The Lighthouse itself is cute. Nice location on the Point. The site was named by Captain George Vancouver when he sailed past the site. The site has historic significance especially during WW2. FYI, there is NO access to this Lighthouse. It is not Peggy's Cove...More

Fabulous walk through some "Giants" that ends with stunning, panoramic views of Burrard from the North Shore mountains to Point Grey and beyond. Various spur trails offer different vantage points of the Lighthouse and surrounding landscape. The main trail is accessible, but with some steep...More
