Surrey, Beaches & Swimming
My boyfriend and I spent a lovely evening after work down at Crescent Beach in South Surrey. It is one of our favourite ocean spots that is never overly crowded (although it does get quite busy on hot summer days). We started our evening with some fresh cod and chips to go from The Fish Net which we carried on a short walk to the beach and ate while sitting on a park bench overlooking the ocean. We then headed back into the small community of Crescent Beach and bought a couple of ice cream cones from Mario’s Gelato. Their liquorice ice cream was black, rich and delicious! My boyfriend tried some banana gelato and really enjoyed it.
We then headed back to the beach and walked along the ocean down to Blackie Spit Park and watched the dogs swimming in the off leash area. This is the only area where dogs are allowed during the summer months. We searched the beach for unique seashells and found quite a few. The waters were busy with sailboats and pleasure boats and even a few skidoos. Overall, it was a relaxing enjoyable evening with a lovely sunset at the end of our night. We will be back!
