“Best Place For The Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This is a well used area with beach volleyball, walkers, runners, skaters and cyclists and is the ideal place to watch the sun go down over Kitsilano.

“Not very large”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

A small bay with plenty of driftwood logs used as partitions across the beach, nothing available (refreshments, etc.) due to end of summer season.

“Wide sandy beach for sun sets and restrauants.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We enjoy the sun sets the most. Seeing the large ships anchored and enjoying a patio of a restaurant for a lunch near by. Walking the beach paths, seeing the amazing color of light show during the summer months and just watch people stroll by or riding their bikes. Safe area, to sit, eat, walk the park paths and beach.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had a long walk along the seawall. The view is amazing. Kudos to the folks in Vancouver for the amazing way they have developed this area for the pleasure of people.

“City beaches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

It is nice to see beaches as part of the city but they are not the best of beaches. I did not like the logs on the beach.
