Jericho Beach is one of my favourite beaches in Vancouver. It doesn't get as crowded as Kits, Sunset, Second Beach and English Bay beaches. There is usually pay parking available, unless the lots are full, as is sometimes the case during the summer months. There's lots of room on the beach, which is very sandy and the sand can burn...

One of the many beaches in Vancouver, very popular and often very crowded. Perhaps less so than the Kitsilano one, but still, on hot weekends quite busy.

We had a lovely picnic on the grass by the beach. It wasn't too crowded and the scenery was beautiful!! It's a little but further from the main downtown area than Kitsilano, but worth the extra distance.

This is the location of the eclectic and entertaining Vancouver Folk Festival, held every midJuly over the weekend. The park is lovely with a fabulous beach for swimming and sunbathing. Fabulous view of the nearby mountains and downtown Vancouver. One of Vancouver's most pleasant parks.

By far one of the nicest beaches in the Vancouver area, Jericho is a great place for families, Volleyball players and travellers just wanting a relaxing place to enjoy a beer and watch the sunset. BTW, drinking in public is technically illegal in Canada, so be sly with your beers.

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighborhood Profile
West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful and much-needed break from the bustle of big-city life, being a little haven of peace and quiet with an almost village temperament in the heart of Vancouver.
