Take a tour of the Point Roberts Marina, which hundreds of Canadians have chosen to make their home port, partially because it is the closest moorage to both the Canadian Gulf Islands and the U.S. San Juan Islands, and partially because it’s moorage rates are far more reasonable than Vancouver. The Marina also has reciprocal moorage with a number of Canadian and US yacht clubs.
Spectacular Views The Reef
Looking for some great local company? Drop in at The Reef, a tavern established by late Canadian wrestler Gene Kiniski. The deck has spectacular views to the west, the staff are friendly and the relaxed atmosphere reflects The Reef’s status as the local pub.
In Full SwingGolf and Country Club
An 18-hole course that was rated among the 10 best new courses in the USA. And you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for a tee time; in fact if you register with the club, you’ll get a free round on your birthday.

Beautiful Views Lighthouse Marine Park
Lighthouse Marine Park is good for watching the whales, while the boardwalk and newly planned fishing pier are the prime destination for the Fourth of July. Finally, Monument Beach is excellent for eagle watching.
Take Your Pick Public Beaches
Four public beaches: Maple Beach (in the NE), Monument Park (in the NW), Lighthouse Marine Park (in the SW) and Lily Point Marine Reserve (in the SE). Maple Beach is the prime spot for swimmers, sunbathers, skim-boarders and certified sand-castle builders. Lily Point Beach is best for checking out marine life.
Sail Away Boating Adventures
Sailing and sail-boarding are Point Roberts’ favourites for good reason. Constant breezes will have you skimming the waves at maximum hull speed. If you are really adventuresome and have your own boat, you can set sail for the San Juan Islands (13 miles by sea) or the Canadian Gulf Islands (10 miles away).
Don’t Miss It Kayaking on the Water
Kayak in the great waters of the ocean. See the sunset on the tranquil waters.
Look Up Bird Watching
Bird watching is fantastic in Point Roberts because it lies on one of the most active flyways in North America, and it benefits every season of the year. Not to mention world-class eagle watching; 10,000 eagles pass through Point Roberts each year.
On Our Doorstep Lily Point Marine Reserve
Looking out onto Boundary Bay on the east coast of Point Roberts, this park boasts over 275 acres for visitors to explore. Sandy cliffs tower over striking green waters, and its long shoreline is dotted with colorful starfish. Best of all, Lily Point is only a short distance from The Cottages at Seabright Farm, making it easy to walk over and enjoy.
Hit the Trails Cycling & Hiking
With peaceful roadways and seaside trails, Point Roberts offers a number of options for hiking and cycling enthusiasts, with rewarding views (and sometimes, whale sightings) on most routes. Travel from park to park with your own bike, or you can pick one up at locally-owned Pedal Pushers Bike Rentals.
Neighborhood Flavor Point Roberts Marketplace
This central grocery store provides the town with a wide assortment of quality foods. Located just a five-minute drive from The Cottages at Seabright Farm, the Point Roberts Marketplace is truly a one-stop shop for locals and visitors restocking their pantries (or looking for some wine to pair with dinner).
Daily Catch South Beach House Restaurant
Perfectly situated to take advantage of ocean views, the South Beach House is a favorite spot for dinner and drinks while taking in the scenery. Not surprisingly, seafood is their specialty, and fresh catches are featured alongside delicious accompaniments created by Chef Max Briand.
Laidback & Local Saltwater Café
Helmed by owner and Chef, Tamra Hansen, the Saltwater Café offers delicious pastries and lunchtime staples on the west end of Point Roberts. Cozy surroundings and fresh ingredients are both on order, as this unpretentious café provides a great option for those looking for a tasty bite on the way to the beach.
