I loved kits beach!! So much more to it, with awesome views of north shore, lots of space for everyone to share, whether it be sunbathing, swimming, playing tennis, kick to kick with a ball. The beach is enjoyed by everyone big and small, defiantly the place to be on a sunny vancouver day.

The neighbourhood of Kits (or Kitsilano) is the happening hood for locals. Proximity to UBC and Downtown, Kits is inhabited by many students and young urbanites who enjoy being so close to the Kits Beach. The place to watch people and to be watched.

We walked to Kits beach from Granville Island on a Tuesday. It was very crowded and there were a lot of elementary school groups. If you want to lay out on the beach, it is probably a nice place to go. But it is not worth seeing as part of an attraction of Vancouver.

A wonderful beach park with great views of the City and North Shore. A great place to spend a summer day at the beach!

Great beach – for sunbathing during the day and watching the sunset in the evening.

To the reviewer questioning the “dirty old logs” on the beach – it’s basically driftwood from the logging industry and I would much rather have one of these to sit on / lean against, rather than setting up sunloungers!
