6 Lesser Known Beaches in the Lower Mainland
Since the usual beaches might be a little too crowded to hang out in this year, here are some lesser known alternatives to check out!
1. Jug Island Beach, Belcarra
This beach is at the end of a short hike through Belcarra Regional Park. With views of Deep Cove and Jug Island, it’s worth the hike to the scenic viewpoint.
2. Crab Park, Vancouver
Although it’s located in the city, Crab Park is still relatively quiet compared to other downtown parks.
3. Iona Beach, Richmond
Since most people can’t fly right now, at least you can watch planes take off in the distance at this Richmond beach!
4. Centennial Beach, Delta
Within Boundary Bay Regional Park, Centennial Beach is a great place to spend a sunny day. Wave "Hi!" to our US neghbours as you can see the Washington shoreline and the iconic Mt. Baker from this beach.
5. Cates Park, North Vancouver
En route to Deep Cove, this North Van park features seaside trails, totem polls, and playgrounds!
6. Stearman Beach, West Vancouver
Nestled in between West Vancouver mansions, this small beach is the perfect place to escape crowds and catch some rays!
With views that will even have locals asking “Where’s that!?”, these beaches are worth considering for a day in the sun!
