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

We enjoyed the walk in Lighthouse park but unfortunately the gates to the lighthouse weren't open when we visited and there was very little information online as to whether or not it's ever open to the public. We did visit very early in the morning...More
