“Romantic Sunset Stroll”

Iona Beach Regional Park

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details

Wonderful way to watch planes flying into YVR and a great place to catch a sunset. The walk or bike ride from start to the very end of the Iona Jetty is about 5km (one way), so my advice is to wear comfortable shoes and use the washroom facilities before you begin, if you decide to walk its entire length.

A great space to watch the sunset, or walk along the long long pier.....its proximity to the water treatment plant can make it smelly at times and I would not go in the water...... also great to see planes coming and going from the adjacent airport...feels far away from the City....beware the speed limits or you will be making a contribution to the RCMP christmas fund!

I was SO surprise to find this place to be right beside one of the most busiest places in the Greater Vancouver area. And that is the international airport. The area is located in downtown but it feels like I am in the suburbs.

If offers great quality time for couples and families for picnics and just leisure walk.

Personally I really enjoy the area for photography reasons.It has an unobstructed view of the horizon and on a nice sunny sunset evening it offers spectacular view.

Only drawback is that the area gets locked down by 10:00pm in the summer. So you cant park your car inside or you may be locked up inside the parking lot.

Check the hours, http://www.metrovancouver.org/services/parks_lscr/ParksDoc/Regional_Parks_Hours.pdf

Bird watchers enjoy this area, relaxing. One can cycle here from Vancouver or Richmond. Or walk from the Canada Line station near the airport (but not the actual airport stop- before it), sorry forgot station name.
