Kitsilano Beach is easy to reach in just 25 minutes by bus from the city center. We came in Winter so no comment on the water quality and the beach as we decided not to go in the water. We stayed for the sunset which i would recommend for everyone visiting the beach, You get an astonishing view not also... More

Lots of kayak rentals on the beach. Half price Monday through Wednesday and cheap at that: $15 an hour. Great restaurants nearby, just walking distance. Try Local Public Eatery - great burgers, tons of fries and super service.

It was very nice sand and a lot of space for everyone to soak up the sun. The weirs thing I found was there were a lot of industry boats in the water nearby the shore. I could not help but this k home much direct pollution they were spilling into the wash where everyone was swimming. Also you are... More

If the weather is in your favour I highly recommend a visit to Kit's beach. Beware of the rules though (no fires etc) as they are strictly enforced.

Most visitors miss this place, it is a local gem. Very nice beach with a beautiful view of downtown Vancouver. The planetarium and the Maritime Museum near by. Very nice walking.

Arguably one of the nicer beaches in Vancouver. Nice grassed area to sit and a decent amount of beach too. Swimming pool to swim in if you would prefer that to the open ocean and "The Local" just across the road. Go for a visit!

This is a great place to just take a slow wander and enjoy the evening sun. Vancouver Maritime museum has a cool experimental submarine, The dog beach is fun to watch, and the promenade is great to take in the Kits atmosphere.

A great place to spend all or part of a day. Terrific beach for enjoying the sun. You can bring your own picnic or there are a couple of restaurants on or close to the beach. There are basketball courts as well as volleyball courts you need to bring your own nets. There is children's playground equipment and on the... More
