Take a trip to Spanish Banks, a series of beaches on the shores of English Bay. Technically only one bank, the beaches split into three main areas: east, west, and extension. The west beach offers the best conditions for skimboarding and kitesurfing, and has particularly extensive low tide flats. All three offer ample room for relaxation and recreational activities, including picnics, barbecues, and beach sports, while the east and west parts also benefit from concession stands and other amenities. For Spanish Banks and beyond, use our Vancouver driving holiday planning website to get the most from your Vancouver vacation.

Sit on/beside a log and read a book, have a picnic. Dinner/evening will provide an amazing view of the sunset. Bike to this spot on the nearby path, wade in the water to cool off. Enjoy the view... more »
Such a great long beach, golden sands, lots of sand volleyball places. There are lots of parking lots but seems always not enough in a busy time.

Definite beach to come chill and enjoy the downtown view.

Good beach, sand is nice, it's big, and also lots of free parking
