Possibly one of the best places I've ever visited!! Amazing beach, Nature on one side & the modern city buildings in the other direction. Can be quite romantic. (Never seen so many vollyball matches in one place?)

We visited in spring, the start of April so it was still cool by the water. However, we enjoyed walking the beach and picking shells. The view of the boats and North mountains were lovely, and the air was crisp and fresh. The beach was quiet, just a few runners along the paths. I posted some pictures of the beach... More

This local picnic and volleyball beach has an added bonus of a wonderful place to walk...facing the ocean and opposing mountains it is a lovely place to relax, stroll, have a dip in the ocean or enjoy a picnic lunch or dinner. Lots of street and lot parking and not too far from Public transit.

Coming from Australia I have high expectations of the word 'beach'. The sand looked dirty and the water full of debris- overall not very inviting. We rode bikes here from downtown and didn't find it to be particularly pleasant at all and moved on fairly quickly. In its defence I must add that it was a winters day and not... More

If you come to Vancouver in the summer do what my wife and I do as locals. Get to the beach 1 hour before low tide and walk out onto the sand bars. You have to walk through pools of little fishes and then when you reach the waters edge you can follow it out to Spanish banks. On a... More

There aren't too many beaches anywhere in the world that provide such an extraordinary view that Jericho does. You have ocean, cityscape and mountains on your doorstep. Very popular with walkers, cyclists (there's a shared path with pedestrians) and families. You can play a pickup soccer game, have a picnic, watch traffic on the sea. Fantastic. As for swimming, well,... More

According to the workmen, it will be closed for about two months. In any case, this is still a great beach to visit and very peaceful this time of year. You can walk a few kms in each direction along the beach. The Galley patio cafe just over the sailing center is open weekends weather permitting. A great place for... More

Nice for a walk. Not that far from the downtown area, but a wonderful view of the whole city, Stanley Park, etc. Check out the upstairs patio of the sailing club - you don't have to be a member, and it is a gorgeous spot for a beer and hamburger while looking at the bay and city. Don't forget to... More

We like the unspoilt beach where we can walk from West 4 th and its neighbourhood shops. We listened to a couple of musicians playing fiddle and mandolin as theft noon came to a close. There are good views of Vancouver Island and towards downtown. Just nice to stroll

One of the many beaches on the North Side of Burrard IInlet - more family oriented - on a weekend large groups of barbecues - and lots of competition of beach volley ball - lots of paths and running routes .... go!
