Third Beach, Vancouver

(4.4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
Get away from the crowds at Third Beach, an expansive and tranquil stretch of coastline. Taking a long walk or simply relax on one of the many logs scattered along the sand. While an adjacent beach offers a livelier, family-friendly hangout, this one remains secluded, frequented mostly by picnicking locals. Bring a barbecue and sit back to enjoy the waves and gentle sea breeze. The abundant trees surrounding the beach enhance the sense of remoteness, blocking noise from the thoroughfare overhead. Rent a bike from a nearby shop and cycle along the seawall; bring bike lights if you plan to stay on after dark. To visit Third Beach and get the most from your holiday in Vancouver, create itinerary details personal to you using our Vancouver vacation trip planner.

  • 如果你有半天的時間在史坦利公園這里的話,有二個海灘在這公園里,這公園實在太大了,所以很多人來這里不是選擇租自行車或是搭車的話,要步行當然也是可以,你得從公園的入口處往左走沿岸邊直走才能到達,但你會錯過很多右邊的知名景點. 不知道大家發現到了嗎?史坦利公園很多景點都在右邊,而左邊比較多人會來到的就是海灘,因為那里景點少之又少,從左邊出發的遊客自然較少. 多數人因為時間有限的關係,所以很多人會選擇從右...  more »
  • Although walking to third beach is always great at any time of the year...during the summer it is at its best. Grab a log and read your book a place of leisure. If you are too hot cool down the water ...  more »
  • Accessible from Seawall (within Stanley Park), this superb Beach recognizable to those giant logs, amazes us. A tip: do not miss this place during your next stay in Vancouver!

  • Where: Third Beach - Vancouver, BC What: A beachfront with access to cycling path. How was it: This was our first time seeing the Pacific ocean, so it was a special place. We will forever remember the time we spent here. The beach is nice, kind of cold to swim but you can dip your feet in the water. There is also a series of rocks you can walk on that brings you above the water. We spent a good deal of time here and also had lunch at the concession stand nearby. Our only regret is not going to see the Siwash rock. Which only means that we should come back some day ! Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4 Recommend: Yes, make this a stopping point when visiting Stanley park.
  • Best place to just hang out with friends. Sand beaches that are not too crowded, clean, I recommend going in the evening to see beautiful sunsets
  • Great place to enjoy the ocean water and a nice view to the West Vancouver hills. It can be hard finding a parking spot in a peak hours and on weekends.
  • Drum circle every Tuesday just before sunset. Very cool spot. Anyone can join in.
  • A great place for a picture, walk or to relax during the Spring and Summer months.
