Small but beautiful Marine park. Lots of picnic tables. At low tide you can walk over to the island, but don't get caught. Pretty walks, lots of lovely vistas, and you might even catch a dolphin or whales passing. Very popular for scuba diving. There is also a woodland walk that is little known or used.

Marvellous for a picnic. A beautiful setting. The downside is that everyone knows it. Get there at the crack of dawn or find another location.

Whytecliff Park, reached by a short and so scenic drive over the Lions Gate Bridge from Stanley Park in Vancouver, offers a cozy beach and a chance to climb a massive rock at low tide. The climb, which takes only about 5 minutes to the top, is not demanding. The views that open are spectacular: the ocean, nearby islands with... More

Getting to Whytecliff is a beautiful drive and the park has beautiful trees and cliffs and ocean views. There is also a little island that you can go to at low tide. the island has cliffs and more beautiful waterfront climbing.

It's a very special place to me. My late wife and I came here for picnics. Such a beautiful setting. Now I take my new bride, preparing again gourmet picnics. Building new memories. The ambience is spectacular.

There are two parts, the beach and the park. It depends on your reason for going. If you are going in the summer for the beach, make sure you know your tides or you maybe disappointed as at high tide there isn't really a beach at all, but at low tide its wonderful. The park has wonderful viewpoints on the... More

I decided to go to Whytecliff Park because it is a known to have Harbour Seals. My friend and I took bus 260 ‘Horseshoe Bay’ from Granville St. and West Georgia street, just next to the department store, the Bay. It is about a 30 minutes walk from the Harbour Park at Horseshoe Bay. I am not sure if there... More

Amazing outdoor spot to spend 2-4 hours. Amazing views, the beach is protected (favourite spot for scuba divers and little kids searching for tiny crabs), there's an island you can reach with a rocky land bridge (careful during high tide!) plus rock outcropping to scramble up by the water and trails for short hikes/walks. Grab your gps or google this... More

Well worth finding the entrance via quite a few backstreets. A real quiet oasis with magnificent coastal views.
