  • This is a great beach on the bay, a nice place on a sunny day. But otherwise it can be cold and gloomy. Bit open space used my many.  more »
  • The view from Kits Beach allows one to take in mountains across the bay, snow capped as they are now, with a sweep from Bowen Island territory on the West, though to the sky-scrapers of downtown...  more »

  • Recommend this place for visitors or those that are new to the city. We sometimes visit just for a stroll. It encapsulates the beauty of Vancouver very well..beach, cityscape, and mountains.
  • Kitsilano Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Vancouver, especially in the warm summer months. Located at the north edge of the Kitsilano neighbourhood, the beach faces out onto English Bay (geographical coordinates 49°16′26″N 123°9′18.4″W). The beach is home to the longest swimming pool in Canada, the salt-water outdoor Kitsilano Pool, operated by the Vancouver Park Boardand open annually from May to September.
  • Best place to be on the Summer. Beautiful beach, amazing atmosphere and lots of beach volleyball.
  • My favorite beaches. Beautiful views and scenery. It's clean and there is a swimming pool, what more could you ask for?
  • The Kitsilano neighbourhood in Vancouver is a lovely area that is known for its beautiful beach. I visited the Kitsilano Beach in May 2017 and although it wasn't warm enough to go swimming, I discovered incredible views of the mountains, English Bay and city from the beach. There was a nice paved walking and cycling path that led along the beach and a beautiful treed and grassy park area for sitting and relaxing. The atmosphere was relaxed, despite it being a bustling beach with lots of activity. I enjoyed admiring the views, taking some great photos, people-watching and relaxing there. Would highly recommend visiting here!
