Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • Magnificent ocean scenery. I am always surprised at how clean it is here
  • A great beach. Very relaxing. Surprisingly the water is cleaner here than other beaches.
