I don't know if I would feel comfortable swimming here, with all the tankers coming in and out of the inlet, but it's definitely a gorgeous place to hang out and have a picnic while enjoying the picturesque view.

After Second Beach you walk around on the sea wall to Third Beach! If you are biking from the English Bay side, you need to use the bike path inland since the bike path is one way from Second Beach. It is a sandy stretch...More

I always like going to Third Beach! The pool has been modernized since I was a kid. Great snack bar. Just to take a walk in the sand on a warm summer day is all I ask!

We decided to hit this beach up because we heard it was nice and quiet, and it was! Beautiful atmosphere and so peaceful. We got brave and tried to climb some rocks out into the water and slipped quite a bit. I've got the scrapes...More

The beach is spacious and clean. Great place to swim safely. No rocks hurting your feet when you approach the water and take a dip!!

Decent beach. Food is available in a concession stand right up above the beach for reasonable prices. Lifeguards were on duty when we visited. The view is great, there was a bit of seaweed, but not too much. Swimming was nice in the August sun.

Take your rollerskates, a blanked and a pick pick! Skate around Stanley Park and spend the rest of the day at the beach. Sometimes it's pretty packed but in general a gret spot to chill. You can drive close to the beach if you want...More

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.
