Third Beach, Vancouver

4.4
#5 of 8 in Beaches in Vancouver
Get away from the crowds at Third Beach, an expansive and tranquil stretch of coastline. Taking a long walk or simply relax on one of the many logs scattered along the sand. While an adjacent beach offers a livelier, family-friendly hangout, this one remains secluded, frequented mostly by picnicking locals. Bring a barbecue and sit back to enjoy the waves and gentle sea breeze. The abundant trees surrounding the beach enhance the sense of remoteness, blocking noise from the thoroughfare overhead. Rent a bike from a nearby shop and cycle along the seawall; bring bike lights if you plan to stay on after dark.

  • Very small beach on the seawall facing the ocean. It offers commanding views to the mountain and out to sea. It does seem to have lots of seaweed.  more »

  • We live locally and love this sandy beach. The beach is well used by the locals and visitors of Stanley Park. We came here on a sunny day in March. The beach scene was a mix of people wearing winter jackets and beach attire! There was plenty of parking during the weekday and finding parking is a bit of a hassle during the weekends. The cost of all-day parking is $13 in Stanley Park.
  • Cool beach stop! Very fun and easy to get to. There's a few cool cafe spots too, definitely recommend coming here in the summer.
