Tsawwassen is a mostly residential community located in the southwestern corner of the Corporation of Delta, in the Lower Mainland, though there are hundreds of shops and boutiques that make this community an entity on its own. And because it is a peninsula, Tsawwassen is surrounded by the ocean, which has blessed the area with some of the most inspiring waterfront and beach terrain, anywhere.
The beaches and parks are what make Tsawwassen an ideal family destination. People travel from near and far to spend a day at Centennial Beach or Diefenbaker Park, or to hike “the stairs” at Fred Gingell Park. And on your scenic drive here, you’ll pass through productive and pastoral farms and greenhouse veggies, and will likely see an eagle or blue heron along the way. Fishing is also a popular pastime around here as boats can be launched on both sides of the peninsula. There are so many hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.
Tsawwassen is also home to the BC Ferries’ Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, (a short drive of fifteen minutes from the town centre) which connects the Lower Mainland with Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands; the Boundary Bay Airport; the Roberts Bank Superport; and provides the only road access to the community of Point Roberts, Washington, via 56th Street.
