Love kits beach. In the summer it's good to get their early to have a spot on the beach or lawn can be crowded and if it's possible take public transit or a cab there as it can be hard to get parking and expensive if you need to pay for it. There is also a Kits dog beach (google it) not to far from the people beach and many dog owners enjoy spending their time while their dogs splash around.

I haven't swam there, but it's good for a walk. I just like the whole area of Kitsilano: the little shops there, the clean streets...

A mainstream beach, with an eatery. No alcohol. The beach is large and has nice sand, but the water doesn't appear clean (even though it is). Most of the people take very good care of their bodies but in typical Vancouver fashion, most people don't talk to others outside of their group. Prepare to meet a lot of reserved attitudes!

There are volleyball nets. Parking can be difficult; bring change to pay. There are a lot of restaurants on Cornwall Ave. Dogs and alcohol aren't allowed at this beach.

Lots to do for everyone in the family. Pick up basketball games or volleyball, beach and water fun for youngsters and oldsrters alike. There are also fast food and more formal sit down dining opportunties. Great place in teh evening to have a leasurely meal and watch a great sunset!

Parking in the area can be a nightmare. The beaches are quite crowded, you sometimes have to line up to use the toilets. There are some great little places to have lunch or dinner. It can be a nice place to chill and just people watch
