Beautiful beach and park area - away from the pace of english bay and the young types of kits..just a great place for a walk, to enjoy the view, to learn to sail, to relax and view the mountains, stanley park, vancouver city, the north shore etc. Bring your camera, coffee and enjoy the day away in the sun or...

go to this beach - walk it, swim there, paddle board and sail there - it is the best beach on English bay. The walk from Kits is wonderful if you have the time - or bike it. On a warmer day, a little romance amongst the log berms is not a bad thing!

A stroll along Jericho Beach is always a welcome way to spend some time. The long winding beach is beautiful and exciting. A keen eye can capture seals in the ocean, eagles and waterfowl along the shore. A great place for walking, surfing, boating or lazing in the sand. A must see destination.

I was quite impressed with Jericho Beach when I biked past it yesterday. It was a Monday afternoon, and the beach just had a handful of people on it. It was quiet, relaxing and offered beautiful views of the mountains. There's a trail by the beach that you can walk or bike along, a concession stand if you happen to... More

I wasted away many summer hours at Jericho Beach and Locarno Beach (where the Jericho Sailing Centre is located) during my youth, without any regret. Unlike the more crowded Kits Beach, Jericho and Locarno are more family friendly and relaxing. As a previous member of the board at the sailing centre, I maybe biased, but I truly believe this is...

A great view of the north shore and the city skyline. Relax and enjoy the beach, the sun, the views. You can rent long boards, wind surf and sail boats. They have it all.

Every time I go to Jericho Beach I leave there amazed at how great it is. Awesome sunsets, beach and people enjoying themselves. Have to experience it as a local and a visitor.
