One of the best beaches in the city. Great views and only complaint as when the weather is good it is very crowded. Get here early in a summer weekend

Great water and mountain views, a playground, a nice beach, a pool, and a concession, all within beautiful Stanley Park. Not quite as crowded as English Bay or Kits Beach, but every bit as beautiful. Be sure to take a walk on the adjacent Seawall.

Beautiful beach in Stanley Park. A short walk from the downtown area along the Seawall brings you to this beach. You can also cycle or roller blade.

to the west of Stanley Park. A beautiful beach, edged by lots of stone "Inuk" sculptures. Simply stunning on a warm day, a place to chill out and have fun.

I hadn't been to Vancouver in 18 years but this beach was on my must do list. I like the fact that it's more hidden than most of the beaches and feels more away from the city. The sand is great, the water seemed pretty...More

Best beach and acre swim pool. You have it all here. Also the tea house restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner. Love this pool as it sits right on the ocean and you have a wonderful view of vancouvers skyline! My fav!

A Favourite place with the locals and tourists alike - in the summer the pool is open and in the winter it is just a nice place to walk around on your walk along the sea wall.

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
