Everyone has their favorite place in Vancouver for views and to watch the sunset. For me, there's no place better than on Jericho Beach. It's a local beach that serves the neighborhood. On warm days, it can get a bit crowded, but it's still very pleasant. There are concession stands and facilities. And, late in the summer, if you look... More

Very large area that offers seashore, ponds and woods. Great walking area and a variety of sea birds, ducks and passerines.

Good stiff walk down to the beach along a trail and back up again. Almost a wilderness. Spent time watching a tug tow logs but could not work out if the logs were going or coming.

Imagine a hill of grand houses in every expensive shape there might be, and below a vast land for everybody's access. Park, sailing centre, arts centre, hostel, pier, beach - all on old airforce ground and reserved for everyone, not only the big wallets. So many little paths for joggers, walkers, strollers, cyclists, and great views of the bay.

Jericho beach comprises a huge foreshore park, carefully manicured at its eastern, ocean-front end, right by the parking lot access. Here are the bathrooms, the fresh water showers, the playground, beach, picnic grounds, extensive lawned fields suitable for sports and a long duckpond running east-west and separating this anthropocentric section from the undeveloped, natural preserve beyond. This is a much... More

I love Jericho Beach, a wonderful walking area, where people hang out all year round. Walking, jogging, cycling, having family get-togethers and BBQ's, swimming, water boarding, rowing and of course there is the great Jericho Folk Festival.

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.
