This is a good large sandy beach, backed up by well kept parkland. The area is a magnet for cyclists, runners and walkers. The views of the bay are superb, and it is good to have a kiosk serving coffee, ice cream, cookies and hot food. The nearby sailing club is also a great establishment with an attractive menu, where... More

I stopped by while staying at the hostel nearby. Several families were enjoying the quiet coast. It's about 30 minutes from downtown by bus, then a short walk.

Pick a beach, any beach in Vancouver, and it's a gem of a beach with its own biome. Jericho Beach Park (check address: it's really on Point Grey Road) has a newly upgraded concession stand and washrooms/change rooms. Cozy, as in surrounded by other parks, Jericho Beach Park is well maintained and quiet, away from beach volleyball and large picnic... More

Jericho beach has the cleanest water and less crowds of Vancouver beaches. There is a food conc sdion and change rooms. But then walk West past the public beach to the more secluded Bay. You can walk even further to the Jericho Sailing Club which has the best kept secret patio restsurant -- light fare and licensed (delicioys micro brews).

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...

we go here regularly and there's lovely trees so its great to take a book and find a nice shady spot to spend the afternoon. There's nice walks along the path or around the lagoon and through the trees or along the other adjoining beaches. The beach is great if you like sunbathing and people swim here too. There's a...

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.
