Britannia Beach

Overview

Introduction

Along the Sea-to-Sky Highway and 35 mi/56 km north of Vancouver, lies the quiet hamlet of Britannia Beach, British Columbia. In the early 1900s, the isolated place attracted miners and quickly became known as the company town of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company.

It's named after the nearby swath of white-capped mountains known as the Britannia Range, and today visitors embark on historic tours of the nearby museum and participate in the array of outdoor activities. A popular activity is hiking north of Britannia Beach at the head of Howe Sound in Squamish.

South of Britannia Beach lies the seaside village of Lions Bay, now a thriving village of artists, writers and musicians.
