    This area is a bit tricky to find but well worth it. It is a quiet refuge in a busy metropolitan area. Great for dog walking, beach combing or photography. Free parkIng nearby. Wonderful views of the ...  more »

    A good place to go for a walk with family. Very nice trail going 4 kilometres into the ocean. It may be a difficult walk on windy days. But they do have a couple of wind shelters on the trail. Beautiful view though. You can observe birds from very close as they fly over the water in search of food.

    Decent park to hang out, go for a walk, go running, bird watching, geo caching, and more especially on a sunny day to enjoy the view. Beach is kept fairly clean. There is washroom facilities by the picnic tables and one at the end of the jetty (4 km long gravel walk way over the pipe). There are four different bins for trash and recycling. Parking spaces seem to be plentiful at this time of year. And no apparent smells as one would notice on a hot day. Summer is usually a lot busier.

    Nice place. Long walk way into the sea. Little windy but still very nice.

    The most peaceful beach within 25 minutes of downtown Vancouver. Tons of space for a quiet stroll, with a 4km pipeline walk out to the south, or 5km of beach to the west. The thousands of driftwood logs strewn make it easy to find a private little hollow to enjoy a picnic and a nap in the sun. It's also one of the top 5 locations in BC to go birding, and an sure spot to find terns, meadowlarks and ospreys.

Where to stay in Richmond

Many travelers visit Richmond on their way to or from Vancouver International Airport, so the city's accommodations cater primarily to visitors in transit. Bridgeport Road, which leads directly to the airport, offers the best selection, with comfortable but rather dull chain hotels offering a clean, comfortable place to rest before a long flight. If you're looking for something with a bit more character, head to Blundell Road to choose from a range of independent guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.
