“Some of the nicest views in the city”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Beach, city skyline, mountains, the sea & beautiful sunbathers. What more can you ask from a beach in the heart of Vancouver. Yes, can be quite crowded on weekends, but still a fun place to spend the afternoon. Parking is a challenge. Go on weekdays when it is not so crowded if crowds are not your thing.

“Love the views”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Kits Beach is populated by the beautiful young things who live in Kitsalano, and there are tennis courts to keep you in good shape too.

“Always enjoy this beach, SO many times!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've been to this beach with my daughters, and family, SO many times to count. Always a fun, enjoyable, great experience! You can always find a place to make your own. Nice place to have a family bbq, day at the beach, throw a football or frisbee around, go for walks, a swim, suntan, do it all! Always fun here! Many great memories!

“Still a good spot”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I've been visiting Kits Beach on and off for 45 years and it really hasn't changed much - which is good! Besides its sandy beach, it provides fantastic views of the sea and mountains. There are tennis courts, playground areas and plenty of spots to sit back and relax. The city has done an admirable job maintaining it.

“Awesome views of Vancouver!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great views of the skyline of Vancouver! My wife and I came to Kits beach on a Monday morning while it was 60 degrees (Farenheit) and sunny, and the scenery couldn't have been any more gorgeous! Great shots of the snow-capped mountains in the background, with the city of Vancouver in front. I'm sure it's a great place to hang out during the summer!
