Not the best beach in Vancouve but probably the most popular. At sunny weekends the place is heaving with people which makes it great for people watching or cruising which ever you fancy. The bay stretches out to Stanley Park and there are two lanes, one for pedesrians and one for bicycle so be careful or you'll get run over! You find plenty of people trying to make ends meet by playing music or whatever so its quite easy to spend an hour or two here.

Address: Beach Ave
Directions: Close to all the downtown hotels.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
