Kitsilano Beach reviews
Well it is usually cold and often rainy, but on a warm summer day, this beach is lovely and a good place for a dip. Otherwise just take a stroll and enjoy the great views. more »
Pretty cool hangout to watch the sunset by the water. We could spend more time there, but it was too crowded for comfort. more »
Recommend this place for visitors or those that are new to the city. We sometimes visit just for a stroll. It encapsulates the beauty of Vancouver very well..beach, cityscape, and mountains.
