Hotels in Tsawwassen, Canada, are in a quiet, relaxed residential community that is a perfect place to experience the beauty of the peninsula outside of Delta, British Columbia in Canada. It is home of BC Ferries’ Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal. The town is on the U.S.-Canadian border at the 49th parallel, north latitude.
Things To Do
Enjoying the natural beauty of British Columbia and the coast is one of the biggest joys of this area. You can enjoy spectacular scenery by hopping the ferry to Vancouver Island. The ferry terminal is built on a man-made island, connected to the town with a causeway. The 90-minute ride to Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island gives you a chance to enjoy the views of the beach and the ocean.
Centennial Beach extends for miles from the beach at low tide. There is a wide range of sea life, from snails to jellyfish, crabs to fish, and scallops to sand dollars. At high tide, the beach is much smaller and offers great swimming.
About an hour from most hotels in Tsawwassen, Canada, you can ski and snowshoe during the winter. During other seasons, enjoy a round of golf at Tsawwassen Springs Golf Course. August’s B.C. Day showcases the Sun Festival, and in July bicyclists love the Tour de Delta bike race.
You can get around the area by bike or car. TransLink buses also have scheduled runs. Take the ferry to reach Tsawwassen, either walk on or drive your car. From the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, you can ride to Swartz Bay, Victoria, the Southern Gulf Islands, and Duke Point in Nanaimo.
Tsawwassen was explored by the Spaniard Jose Maria Narvaez Gervete in 1791. He was awed by the number of salmon he saw. You can see displays of the early history of the area at the Delta Museum and Archives near some of the hotels in Tsawwassen, Canada, in the downtown area.
