The view from the beach across the inlet to the North Shore mountains is lovely, and it's interesting to watch the boats - commercial and pleasure - going in and out of the harbour area. The beach is nice and sandy and there are giant tree-trunk logs placed about for people to sit on or sit against. The beach in... More

A great place for a long walk all year round. Sculptures to admire, interesting views and memorial benches to sit and take in the scenery.

Great place to chill out with a brew on a lazy summers afternoon. Having the logs along the beach provides good spots

A beautiful walk any time of year - & the ocean air & sea views are the perfect way to unwind. Approx. 4km of gravel path takes you all the way from Jericho Beach to Spanish Banks - & then there's plenty more distance 'off road' on the sand & rocks of the beach. A wonderful place to rub shoulders... More

This beach is less busy than the other beaches closer to downtown but seems to catch a cooler breeze that is great during hot summer days.If you like watching the windsurfers or small sailing craft this is the beach!

We love coming here every time we visit. We can walk forever along the beach. It was very windy today but the fresh air brought out the windsurfers, kite flyers, and us.

Jericho Beach is one of the most beautiful of the many beaches that circle English Bay in Vancouver. Easily accessible by public transportation and seawall bike lane/path from downtown makes this a very wonderful afternoon or evening get away. Adjoining the beach is a beautiful natural marsh with many varieties of song birds. Close by is the Jericho Sailing Centre... More

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighbourhood Profile
West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful and much-needed break from the bustle of big-city life, being a little haven of peace and quiet with an almost village temperament in the heart of Vancouver.
