False Creek

The False Creek is a creek that divides downtown from the rest of the city. You can see that the creek is made up of the four major water bodies of Vancouver. The creek was named by George Henry Richards a hydrographer in his survey of 1856-63. A beautiful inlet and a must-see.

Kitsilano Beach

This is where the temple of the body is worshiped: in the height of Vancouver's summer, there are hordes of bikini-clad fitness addicts, testosterone-fueled displays and rollerblading fans. With views of the North Shore mountains, this beach offers special amenities and activities. A large grassy area behind the beach has playgrounds, tennis courts, and more then enough room for several rounds of Frisbee and volleyball. The largest outdoor pool in the city is here, perfect when the water is too chilly. There are change rooms, showers, and concession stands.

This popular beach is close to everything: cafes, bars, an indoor pool, the vibrant West End and all of downtown. Just blocks away from the daily grind of business, this sandy strip attracts sun-worshipers each sunny day. It is located along the Seawall, so take a picturesque stroll after enjoying the rays. Home of the January Polar Bear Swim and the popular Symphony of Fire fireworks display. Concession stands, changing rooms and showers are available.

Wreck Beach

Amid the surf, sand and trees at the end of miles of rocks and sand lies this beach, where clothing-optional sunbathing is permitted. The festive atmosphere here includes children, seniors and everyone in between. Located near the University of British Columbia, it even has its own society that organizes events like sandcastle building, an art show, beach ball, kite-flying and sand croquet - all sans apparel. Vendors sell everything from jewelry and clothing to special cookies and beer. Get your hair cut, a massage or even a pedicure.
