Visiting Point Roberts
A geopolitical oddity, Point Roberts is a part of the United States that is not physically connected to it, making it a pene-enclave of the U.S. It is located on the southernmost tip of the Tsawwassen Peninsula, south of Delta, British Columbia, Canada, and can be reached by land from the rest of the United States only by traveling through Canada. It can be reached directly from the rest of Washington and the U.S. by crossing Boundary Bay by sea or air.
Currently, fewer restaurants are available in Point Roberts, several have closed recently. (Breakwater's at the Marina, South Beach House, and Eagle's Roost at the Golf Course) We recommend you call or check their websites to make sure restaurants are open, especially in the off-season.
There are no 'door dash' or delivery options at this time. Some restaurants in Tsawwassen will deliver up near the border if you meet them.
At our local markets in the Summer, fresh produce, ice cream, bakery treats and gourmet coffee are available. Several vendors will set up delivery or reserves if you want to pre-stock with select, peak freshness salads and greens and limited edition baked goods.
Parks, Activities and Wildlife Viewing
The lifestyle here evens out economic differences - most of what we do "for fun" is free! Fresh air, miles of trails through ancient forests, miles of natural beaches, ocean kayaking, sailing, biking, hiking, photography and observing our thriving eagle community and visits from J-Pod Orca whales can be enjoyed by everyone.
