  Third Beach
by jamiesno

Third Beach is yet another beach in Stanley Park that is very active. Lots of families and sun bathers. Is is getting further away from the downtown when you are in this area.

There is also food and washrooms just up from the beach in this area.

If you are walking around the park via English Bay and Second Beach in that direction which is not the normal way mind you, most people enter from Georgia Street and walk around in that direction. In any event if you are walking the other way at Third Beach you have to decide if you are going to continue walking the seawall promendate or venture into the forest uphill to the Hollow Tree and Prospect Point. You won't be able to get back down to the promenade until you get to Prospect Point. The walk is mostly uphill as this is the highest point in the park.

You are trading off the amazing view at Prospect Point for small seawall views and a close up of the Shiwash rock, if your up for a steeper walk I would recommend heading up to Prospect Point!
