My wife and I took a ferry from Granville Island to stop at Vancouver Aquatic Centre. We then walked along this beach to eventually see the park where the "A-maze-ing Laughter" statues are located.

We got stuck in the awful Vancouver traffic. It was a beautiful day, our last day in the city. So we asked: why not try a place to enjoy sunset? We just followed west and arrived at Pacific Dr. at Sunset Beach. What a great...More

Sunset Beach was just the road from our hotel. We came down, sat on one of the large logs and just looked out to the harbor filled with huge ocean going ships, sailboats, motorboats and kayaks. Great spot to grab a little sun, to read...More

When visiting Vancouver for our anniversary I thought it would be cheesy/cute to watch the sunset by a beach. We checked when sunset was and got there about 40 minutes earlier to settle in. I’m glad we did because there’s a lot of interesting people...More

If you are walking westward from False Creek to Stanley Park, this is a great place to stop and admire the views. Services available, including washrooms and parking - both rare in this area.

Sunset Beach.... says it all. There are logs throughout the beach area for you to sit on, or bring your own blanket. Bring your camera. It’s well worth the wait.

There is a reason why it's called the Sunset Beach. The view is gorgeous during dusk. The yellow lights of sunset and silhouette of landscape are nice to watch.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
