Very disappointed that the water is currently so polluted here right now that it has been deemed unfit for swimming. You would think that the municipality of West Vancouver or Horseshoe Bay would look into this problem.

Dogs allowed which is great. Lovely trails winding up and down to the sea. The causeway at low tide is spectacular. The concession serves a great ice cream.

This was our first stop on the way north to Whistler. This park is about 5 minutes off the Sea to Sky Highway. Very pretty park, gorgeous views, great place to walk the dog.

Nice family oriented park with lots of park benches and tables. Great view out to the west toward Bowen Island. We could see scuba divers coming and going all day. Concession stand onsite.

I love swimming at Whytecliff Park because the water is usually crystal clear. It is quite cold but refreshing on a hot day. There are lots of people with scuba gear there too. Bring your snorkel and a picnic.

A beautiful park where you can watch the ocean and ferries sail by . There is also a concession stand, covered picnic area and children's play area. You can walk down to the water's edge where at low tide you can walk to asmall island?rockformation. Great place for beachcombing, picknicking or relaxing.

This is a lovely beach setting and at low tide you can walk to an island. Picturesque. A must visit if you are needing to relax, grab a log and sit back and enjoy the view.

This is a unique park with great views, serious value for scuba divers and fun for anyone. All within a short drive from the big city! Great place.

Decent dive spot, not enough sea life to rate higher and the downhill walk to the shore. The concession makes it worthwhile though.
