Owner description: This expansive beach offers fantastic picnicking opportunities, swimming, beach volleyball, or simply a panoramic view of Vancouver and the mountains. Spanish Banks tends to be a quieter beach which makes it very family-friendly.

I love the view of the city from the beach, the mountains and the ocean. Very large beach, so it doesn't feel like it's ever too crowded on a busy day.

I walked this beach from one end to the other,Spanish Banks to Jericho, it's beautiful. Very clean. Sun bathing is nice here because there is so much beach, you are never crowded. We took our kites one day but the wind was iffy. On a better day for kites it would've awesome because there is so much space to run.

I love going to Spanish Banks with the kids! Because it's so shallow you can walk a long way. When you get far enough to swim you can get lucky and hit some nice warm currents!!

This is such an inspiring spot to walk--sandy beach, mountains, ocean, lovely homes nearby and a photographer's dream--many birds to view

If you want one of thaw greatest views in Vancouver and the most spectacular sunset this is the palace to be .Bring your picnic basket or portable barbecue , everyone is laid back, no drama, and when the tide is out you can walk quite a ways out . Great for kids!
