|About these ratings|
When the weather's nice, you should follow Vancouverites down to the shores of English Bay. This beach along the northern edge of Kitsilano is the city's most popular swim spot. Plus, there are areas for in-line skating and volleyball and a playground. If you're craving a swim but the bay water is just a little too chilly for your liking, try the area's heated Kitsilano Pool. You can also visit the nearby Vancouver Maritime Museum, which offers educational respite from the summer sun. The area tennis courts and concession stands are great for your beach and museum breaks.
You can visit Kitsilano Beach for a minimal cost from the end of May to early September. Check out the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation website for more information on hours and fees.
