The ambiance is good and so is the crowd around the place. It’s a good place to relax and take a stroll. Perfect for biking too. The place is good for views and I had so much fun taking photographs around here. The views are picture perfect

Kits Beach has been known for decades for it's summer Showboat (Amateur) Productions (admission by donation). There's also a fantastic salt water pool as well as a lovely beach who prefer to swim in the surf. Numerous beach volleyball courts are available as are a couple of basket ball courts.

Nice area by the downtown. Lots of people walking, jogging, and biking. Great place to view the sunset. Fee parking. Worth the visit.

Went sea kayaking along the waterfront and then walked back. Smoothly from one of the cafe. Sunshine. Kids playing. Views of the harbour to die for. If only the pool had been still open I would have been in heaven $(kits pool is my favourite in the world)

I really wasn't impressed by any of the beaches in Vancouver. They just seemed dirty and not very appealing. The only real positive is the views from the beaches.

This is a great beach. The view is simply amazing. There is a large pool just by the beach. Not free, but affordable.

If your looking for views and a nice place for a walk, give this place a visit. Easy access on public transit and lots of places to eat near by. I prefer going in the off season when there isn't a lot people around.

This beach has something for everyone, you can relax on the sand, go swimming, do watersports nearby, play volleyball, children can play in the park and you can walk, bike, skate along the walkway! Its worth a visit to the Boathouse while your here, amazing views while the sun is setting.
