Great views large expanse away from the crowds there are washrooms and shower to wash off the sand but thats it. You can stop and watch the planes land. A great place to take your family for a picnic

We went early evening and walked 1/2 way down the sewage outfall pipe. A huge walking path on top about 20 feet wide. What a beautiful area with so much too see. Great view back to the airport and you can see the planes lining up in the sky to land. Wonderful vantage point for a sunset. A nice cool... More

8km round walk down the sewer pipe, took about 1 hour 45 minutes. Lots to see, especially as the tide ebbs as then mudflats are exposed and eagles stand around on them. Great place to plane spot as many planes fly directly overhead. There is no shade along the pipeline so be prepared on a sunny day. There's also no... More

Before you go, checkout a map or set your gps. It's way around back of the airport. This is a long narrow man-made spit of land to service a sewer outfall. Whenever I've been there, the breeze is so strong there is no indication of sewage smell. To offset the difficulty in getting here and the lack of amenities is... More

My husband works in Richmond and had noticed the long pipeline walking path out at Iona Beach park. We didn't realize how long of a walk it is - 6 km round trip - and took our daughter just over halfway before turning back. On a nice day it's a great walk where you can take photos of all of...

My wife & I walked the jetty for a second time a couple of months ago. It's an interesting 2 hour walk which is approx 8.6 kms in distance return. It's basically a level, straight walk on the jetty with views of life on the water on both sides including local bird life The Vancouver (YVR) airport is a short... More

We were in Vancouver last Christmas visiting family and they took us to Iona Beach to walk on the jetty/spit pipe. I was a little put off at first because it is in fact a sewer pipe, but we liked the walk so much we went back and did it again before we left. The entire 4km ish walk is... More

Park is very near the International Airport. Due to flight mix-ups we had six hours to wait for next flight. We had access to a car so went to the beach. Watched kids and adults explore the delta and watched the tide come in. Sat in the sun on huge pieces of drift wood along the beach.

This is my favorite beach, I call it Freedom Beach, I can walk for hours at low tide and get myself grounded, all alone most of the time, the beach area is a driftwood paradise or graveyard if you wish to call it that. You can find a very secluded area and practice your NUDE bathing, It is a Wildlife... More
