This is a tiny cliffside park with access to the beach and scuba diving sites. Beautiful panoramic views of Howe Sound and Bowen Island can be found here, as well as grassy areas and picnic sites. It's a beautiful quick photo op for those visiting Horseshoe Bay.

We spent last August staying on the North Shore and all the beautiful beaches in West Vancouver were closed because of poop in the water. They were declared unsafe for swimming. It was kind of strange because people didn't seem to care and the media reports were vague about the cause. It remains a mystery as to how all that... More

Hidden gem! Definitely not a big park but it has amazing views and is a beautiful walk. It is just off the sea-to-sky highway down by Horseshoe bay which is wonderful area. This park is not an easy walk with a groomed trail, its very windy and rocky and steep in a few parts.

This is a classic for us. We always take visitors to this park. Love to search for sea creatures among the rocks.

This park has lots of little hidden seating areas on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Picnic tables and large play areas make this a perfect spot for families. In season there is a small restaurant stand that makes great burgers. There is also a small hill to climb that juts out into the bay but mind the tide or you... More

Wish there was more parking. Wanted to go for a picnic but couldn't because there was nowhere to park. If I go back again will go earlier in the morning. There were lots of scuba divers there but I was told the visibility was poor

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. Several viewpoints --- there is a large picnic table at the top point of the park, and there are a bunch of short walking trails on... More

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. Great location for a wedding or photo shoot (as we saw while we were there). The only negative was that the parking lot gets quiet crowded and... More

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.
