  • Don't miss this place, great view of Vancouver and joyfulness is here. All people will gather here every weekends so you can do lots of beach sports with them  more »
  • The beach is large and comfortable. You can walk on the sand or on tarmac road. There are very many shells and you can see many large ships.
