|Third Beach, which is due north of Stanley Park Drive. Locals tote grills and
coolers to this spot, a popular place for summer evening barbecues and sunset
This hidden gem, tucked away in
Stanley Park, gets lots of sun. It is plenty
big enough to handle any crowds and the water boasts a nice, unmucky bottom. It
makes for a nice, refreshing place to stop on a bike or rollerblade trip around
Stanley Park at Ferguson Point
One of Vancouver's naturally sandy beaches located far from the madding crowd
yet so close to the downtown core.
Stanley Park's forest looms behind this nearly hidden treasure of a spot
shielding dippers and tanners from urban noise. Great spot for quiet bathing,
picnic suppers and sunsets.
