If you want a nice level walk by the ocean with a million dollar view, this is the place. A total distance of 8 km round trip. I enjoy jets, which is an added bonus because of the proximity to YVR.

If you are visiting Vancouver hopefully you have rented a car because Iona beach is not accessible by public transportation. The beach itself is not huge but most of the time there is barely anyone there so you can enjoy a nice and quiet time with ocean view in front of ya. There is also a very long walk-way that... More

Check it out....great place to sit and watch the sun set, walk the duck ponds or take a stroll umongst the driftwood on the beach. If you are a plane watcher you will see lots of them too.

I jogged to the end of the jetty and back which was a chore but well worth it. The jetty is level and flat so it's no problem if you have to time. The other side of the park has beach and wetlands. The drive to the park is fun itself as the road hugs the airport's north edge.

This is an interesting and somewaht unique place. The long walkway out into the Strait of Georgia is a sewer pipe! Go there at high tide or it could be smelly, not from the sewage, but from the smell of the stinky "beach". It is a dog's heaven, watch your step accordingly. Depending on the wind direction, park users may... More

We needed to kill a couple of hours before dropping off the car at the airport and didn't have a clue what it would be like. You have to drive through an industrial area along the periphery of the airport. Glad we did as this is a wildlife habitat in the middle of nowhere which is for wildlife conservation for... More

When I can't go to Garry Point, I go to Iona Island. Less tourists and not as busy. What I like about this place is that you get to walk on the beach which is nice and relaxing. You get to see some nice birds too. One time I saw a bald eagle perched on a tree. The only down... More

The park actually has 2 areas...to the north is a trail/path, ending in the beach and logs. A nice walk with a view of the water. Great place to see birds, including eagles, also for geocachers...a few caches along the way. To the west is the jetty...4km out to the end, be prepared for a fairly long walk with no... More

We had a nice walk here. If you enjoy looking at birds this is definitely a good place to go. We walked out on the Iona jetty, about a 4 km walk in one direction. Even though it was raining we had a very nice time looking at birds and seals. We even saw a very rare visitor to these... More

Iona park is almost a magical place, where time stood still. This Grave yard of driftwood is most likely the way it was for hundreds of years, surrounded by sandy shoreline, teaming with birds in tall grass gently swaying in fresh ocean breeze. Beautiful sunsets with romantic stroll along the shore line are unforgettable experience. That is unless you venture... More
