Third Beach, between Ferguson Point and Siwash Rock in Stanley Park on the park's west side, is a pleasant and popular beach. Third Beach offer incomparable vistas and it boasts the best sunsets too. Stanley Park is within easy walking distance of downtown Vancouver.
Third Beach is one of the best beaches in Vancouver. There's a bike path that goes all the way around Stanley Park so you can easily cycle to third beach and lock up at the bike park, or bring your bike on the beach. The cycling path is either above the seawall, or cuts right through the beach on the seawall. It's an easy incline for swimming and there's a lifeguard on duty from May to September. Another interesting feature of the beaches in Vancouver are the logs that are placed intermittently throughout the beach. This allows sun worshippers a place to sit or lean up against a log, and offers some privacy as well.
This beach has a concession stand, change rooms and public washrooms. Oh course there is plenty of pay parking for those that will drive. But it's much better if you walk or ride through the park to get the full effect of the forest and ocean smells and views. Leave the car at home.
