Owner description: Beautiful vibrant beach that comes alive when it's sunny and warm out. Various activities such as scuba diving, kayaking and others.

We spent some time at this beach on a recent visit to Vancouver. We thought this was the nicest of the beaches we visited. It is wonderful to have access to such a beach steps away from downtown.The beach itself was clean and bathroom facilities close by as well as other recreational activities and restaurants. The water is dirty though and the tankers off in the distance distract from the views. Great on a hot day and to relax.

I think there is no prettier place for a walk on a sunny day than along this beach area. The views of the water and across the bay are lovely, you can enjoy the ocean breeze and you are close to shopping and restaurants when you get tired of nature.

This was a lovely beach to visit - mix of sandy, stony, rocky areas. They had logs along the beach as seating areas, but I don't know if this was just for the fireworks (I was lucky enough to be there for the Celebration of Light firework display) or if it's a regular thing.
