Lantzville may be reached by sailing on BC Ferries from either the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal or Tsawwassen ferry terminal.

The beaches along Lantzville’s 4.5 km long waterfront are always changing. The formation of beaches is result of dynamic process of “erosion” and “deposition” caused by tides, waves and longshore currents.
Lantzville’s beaches are primarily cobble and narrow, because they are in an erosion area.
The community has done an excellent job of developing a number of useful and attractive neighbourhood parks including Copley, Huddlestone and Rotary Parks. These parks provide an opportunity for visitors and residents to enjoy the surroundings of this community. Parks are located in both Upper and Lower Lantzville.
To reserve the shelter with picnic tables at Huddlestone Park call the District of Lantzville Municipal Hall at 250.390.4006. Booking of the facility is free of charge; however, the Municipal Hall accepts donations with monies being put towards improvements to the Park.
Lantzville is a place where neighbours care about neighbours and a place where if you pass someone on the street you are greeted with a friendly 'hello' regardless of whether you're a known resident or just visiting.
