Discover North Delta

From birdwatching to beaches, there’s lots to explore

With a rural atmosphere, big city amenities, breath-taking scenery, and world-famous bird watching, Delta’s an all-season destination where sea, freshwater, land and several million feathered friends come together in spectacular fashion.

Delta is a bird lover’s paradise with one of Canada’s top bird-watching areas in the Delta Nature Reserve.

With Delta’s low elevation, cyclists can enjoy some spectacular bike rides. For 11 kilometres of forested trails or a scenic picnic, visit Watershed Park.

Explore the local Delta charm with local shops, wineries and farm tours. You’ll find many unique shops and restaurants to visit in Ladner Village, iconic for its fishing heritage. Visit Tsawwassen for a day at the beach, to enjoy some saltwater fishing or a shopping trip to the Lower Mainland’s premier shopping mall, Tsawwassen Mills.
