We will have 3-4 days to spend at the beach before flying out of Vacnouver the 1st week of August - looking for recomendations. We have 3 kids, ages 7, 5 and 1 year old.

( We will have already spent some time in the mountains and Harrison Hot Springs)

Either Parksville on the island ..Rathtrevor Provincial park

or White Rock...not sure what sort of accmmodation there is now close to the beach but I spent many a happy afternoon, day after day in the summer as a kid.. the tide goes way out, the beach is safe, it's close to Vancouver.

Finally there's English Bay or Spanish Banks right in Vancouver.. you might book a family suite at the Sylvia hotel right across from the beach..

BTW not sure whyy you've got this posted in Clinton....it's a small town in the interior.. and while they have a neat little museum it's not anywhere near a beach!

Not so! Green Lake has a beach, and that's near Clinton. ;>

But yes, I'd guess this ended up in the Clinton forum by mistake.

Not sure of your routing but you could look at spending time in the Okanagan. Osoyoos jumps to mind. Warm water. Great beaches. Lakefront accommodation available.

Ocean beach options include the Sunshine Coast, Savary Island, Parksville, Gulf Islands.
