Beaches & Swimming

Nestled in ocean pockets surrounding the urban centre, Vancouver's beaches promise clean water, sandy shores and spectacular views.
Each Vancouver beach – Jericho, Spanish Bank, Kitsilano, Ambleside, Wreck, Second and Third, and Centennial – boasts its own ambiance and personality.
Amble along the shores of Jericho, take a dip at Spanish Bank, cheer on volleyball matches at Kitsilano or appreciate the sunset at Second Beach. For those who want to bare it all, head to Wreck Beach with its birthday-suit dress code.
The best sunning and swimming months in Vancouver are June through August. Be prepared for crowds on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays during the summer months as city beaches are popular with locals.
