This is one of the best beach in vancouver. Clean and awesome view. All beaches are connected in sequence and this one we liked the most. It also had the cycling area and surfing area.

We went to English Beach, Second Beach, and Third Beach, and this one was our favorite. Maybe because it was our first one, we thought it had the most relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of people were leaning against logs watching the waves and the...More

The extra effort that it takes to get to this stretch of heaven in downtown Vancouver is absolutely worth the effort. With the best water of any other beach in the Lower Mainland, you can sit back, relax and people watch or enjoy the view...More

Slightly smaller but still gorgeous beach. Definitely a good place to stop after a long bike ride around the park.

The beaches in Vancouver are always FULL with residents and visitors, walking, sitting and reading or playing volleyball. The view of Vancouver City is wonderful, and have attracted many artists with its beauty. Definitely worth a visit especially on a nice sunny day.

Although our visit to Canada was not going to be a beach holiday we knew that we would have access to beaches and Vancouver has several small beaches around the seawall.. The Third Beach is at Stanley Park where we paid a visit.

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.
