Eagle Harbour is nestled on the shores of Burrard Inlet, largely secluded from passersby on Marine Drive and the Upper Levels Highway. The two key thoroughfares link the community with the rest of Metro Vancouver, but residents seek homes here for their secluded, private nature.

Just a 20-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, Eagle Harbour is a West Coast marine retreat. The slips of West Vancouver Yacht Club are visible from the highway above, but it's a long way down. And locals like it that way, free from the freeway and close to the water.

Eagle Harbour average home prices are $1.6 million. Eagle Harbour house prices start at $760,000 and can run to more than $6 million. The steep price tag gives residents a home, some shops, but the key amenities -- aside from the placid character of Eagle Harbour itself -- lie above the neighbourhood on the mountain slopes, or in the core of West Vancouver.

Eagle Harbour Cafés and Restaurants

The community's two yacht clubs are the best bets for local eats, but Eagle Harbour is also close enough to Horseshoe Bay and Dundarave to enjoy the offerings of these communities.

Eagle Harbour Sports and Recreation

Two yacht clubs -- the West Vancouver Yacht Club and Eagle Harbour Yacht Club -- offer sailing enthusiasts moorage, while green areas within the community offer terrestrial delights. Cypress Mountain above offers hiking and skiing.

Eagle Harbour Transportation

Connected to the rest of West Vancouver by Marine Drive, Eagle Harbour is a short commute by car from downtown Vancouver. West Vancouver buses serve the neighbourhood, but a car is essential for the fastest travel.
