Fodor's Review

Farther along Beach Avenue towards the Burrard Bridge, Sunset Beach, between Thurlow and Bute streets, is too close to the downtown core for clean safe swimming, but is a great spot for an evening stroll as well as taking your dog for an (off-leash optional) walk. It's also a "quiet" beach. You can catch a ferry to Granville Island here, or swim at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre, a public indoor pool and fitness center. Amenities: lifeguards; food and drink;

toilets; parking (fee). Best for: walking; sunset.
