The Spanish coast is Vancouver's little-known beach bay, suitable for bringing relatives and colleagues together. The scenery here is beautiful. The beach is big enough for family outings. The scenery here is worth seeing. The beach has a better sunset. Unfortunately, too many people who show them naked prevent me from staying there to watch the sun.
This is a perfect place for watching the sunset. Beautiful views. Great for some long exposure shots as well. We saw the Firewrorks on August 3rd from here. Nice view, not too crowded as compared to the English Bay. During early morning the tide is so low that we saw people walking in what seemed like middle of the ocean with the massive ships in touching distance. That wasn't the case of course but it is a sea change in how this area looks with low tide and during the evening when it seems like a proper beach. You can also take a hike into the Pacific Spirit Regional Park on the opposite side and there's lots of parking available.
Whether you’re a beach bum or BBQ boss, Spanish Banks in the Kitsilano neighbourhood is the ideal spot to soak up the rays during the dog days of summer. Offering unrivalled views of the coastal mountains across the water, this long stretch of sandy beach is lined with picnic benches where, in the summer months, Vancouverites go to enjoy a day at the beach among family and friends. There are shaded picnic spots but it’s best to bring a beach umbrella and plenty of sunblock if you’re to sit in the sand.
Beautiful place in the summer, great spot to watch the fireworks too. Can get kind of crowded on major events though.
Located west of Jericho Beach but not quite as far as Wreck Beach, Spanish Banks Beach Park is one of the more quieter, expansive beaches of Vancouver. Giving you the full view of downtown Vancouver from a distance, with a beautiful touch of the north shore mountains and the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean, this is a fabulous spot to come with your beloved for a romantic picnic or simply to kick back and hang out with friends. This is also a great choice if you have your furry friend with you, as there is a large off-leash dog area here. A concession and a bathroom to boot, Spanish Banks makes for a totally satisfying day at the beach.
go for a walk at low tide- great work out
