Nice walk not only on the beach but in the surrounding area as well. Need to go early for parking as it gets full up pretty quick.

A great place to visit the ocean ... water warms up more here in the summer than elsewhere as the floor is shallow and sandy. You can walk out seemingly forever when the tide is out.

We spent our first morning in Vancouver exploring Kitsilano and then strolling along the beaches of Spanish Banks. Such a nice relaxing start to a busy vacation in this beautiful area!

Great sandy beach, low tide lets you walk out to sea a lot, kites galore, volleyball nets set up, lots of parking but nowhere to buy amenities that you may have forgotten. Clean washrooms.

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
