Kitsilano Beach is one of Vancouver's most popular beaches. It's close proximity to downtown Vancouver and easy accessibility by public transportation, car and bicycle make it easy to get to any time of day. There's plenty of sand to stretch out and soak up the sun, plus grassy areas for those who want to keep sand out of their sandwiches. Along with the free tennis and basketball courts, there's an outdoor salt-water pool for a small fee. On a hot summer's day, it's totally worth it. The facilities also include washrooms, change rooms, and a couple of different dining options on the beach. For the little ones, there's a park that overlooks the beach. Going with your dog? There's a dedicated dog beach for them to run around and swim. Also not to be missed are the sunsets from Kits Beach. They're pretty epic.
