  • We loved our walk along the seawall. The view changes as you walk around the bend. It was fun to gather a couple sea shells and sit on the beach. The trees along the path are so pretty.

  • Excellent beach in vancouver area with lot of activities for people of all ages. It is very scenic and lively beach with excellent view of the mountains and city. Lots of sports activities to enjoy. It is also easily accessible by public transit. The sunset at this beach is really awesome. Definitely going back !!!!
  • So many different cultures enjoying life and the outdoors together. What a beautiful sight to see! Someone at a restaurant recommended Kitsilano Beach to me and my wife and WOW this seemed to be the place that people come to when the weather is nice. People were friendly and non-judgmental. There was so much going on: rock climbing wall. Volleyball was being played everywhere. Basketball courts were occupied. There was a lot of people in the water, so my wife got in and said the water was warm. People sunbathing….the list goes on. They even had a hard stand building for a restroom and a concession stand that was nice and cool! Be mindful that you do have to pay for parking. It’s not free. Look for the kiosk machines throughout. Just to give you a estimate for parking, we paid $7 for 2hrs. If your hungry, thirsty or want a coffee, there’s several places to get that across the street.
