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.

Had fun hanging out one night w some friends. The kids played a game of baseball and we watched the sun set. Not crowded at all. Perfect evening.

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.

Still one of my favorites ! Tons of volleyball nets, parents with their kids, people on the pier trying to catch crabs, relaxed faces all around. And the view either towards downtown or towards the mountains catches your breath.

I love this beach. It's got logs laid out down it to set up your towels by, nice sand, and great views of the mountains and the city. It can be a little hard to get to the water through the sharp rocks and shells. I would recommend getting there before noon in order to get a good choice of... More

Jericho beach, on a very sunny and hot Sunday, was very less crowded than many other beaches we saw, which we liked. The view on the mountains and downtown Vancouver is beautiful. However, I wouldn't say it's a good place for swimming, since, at least where we were, the sea bottom is all rocks and shells, making it almost impossible... More

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.
