My wife and I took a ferry from Granville Island to stop at Vancouver Aquatic Centre. We then walked along this beach to eventually see the park where the "A-maze-ing Laughter" statues are located.

Sunset Beach was just the road from our hotel. We came down, sat on one of the large logs and just looked out to the harbor filled with huge ocean going ships, sailboats, motorboats and kayaks. Great spot to grab a little sun, to read...More

If you are walking westward from False Creek to Stanley Park, this is a great place to stop and admire the views. Services available, including washrooms and parking - both rare in this area.

There is a reason why it's called the Sunset Beach. The view is gorgeous during dusk. The yellow lights of sunset and silhouette of landscape are nice to watch.

For FREE PARKING, miles of shoreline to walk, great concession stands, and fabulous sunsets go to Jericho Beach, , Locarno, Spanish Banks East and West. Beautiful at sunset with the light shining on the downtown towers.
