7 Sunset Worthy Spots in Vancouver

If you’re looking to spend an evening watching the sky transform in a rainbow of yellows, oranges, pinks, purples, and blues, here’s a great list of places you can do it.


Until further notice, in line with the public health order, non-essential travel into, within, and out of BC is not recommended. BC residents, let’s do our part by continuing to stay small and support local with your immediate household, in accordance with the latest guidelines.


Grab a jacket and pack a blanket to settle down in one of these amazing Vancouver spots.


On Top of a Mountain

Sunsets always look more spectacular when you’re up high. If you want to get a view of the city, head to a local mountain and catch the last rays of the sun as the glimmer off Downtown’s buildings.

West End

A whole host of beachy sunset choices will greet you at the West End‘s English Bay; Third Beach, Second Beach, English Bay Beach, and the aptly-named Sunset Beach. Grab a blanket and settle down on a socially distanced patch of sand or grass, and enjoy the beautiful view.


Much like the West End, Kitsilano has several beach spots where you can set-up and watch the sun kiss the mountains. Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks are nice for quietly soaking up the last of the suns rays, while Kitsilano Beach is the place to go to if you’re not into sitting still. 

Queen Elizabeth Park

If you want to get above Vancouver without having to go up a mountain, look no further than Queen Elizabeth Park. The park is the perfect spot to end a summer’s day after exploring mount pleasant and the surrounding area. This hill, in the middle of the city, provides fantastic views of Vancouver, the surrounding mountains, and False Creek. Once the sky starts changing, the lights of the city start flickering and make for a magical view.

Stanley Park

The world-famous Stanley Park is one of Vancouver’s gems. There’s so much to do in the park; from horse-drawn tours to bike rides and rainforest trails, beaches to the seawall, Stanley Park Brewing to The Tea House RestaurantWe’ve condensed the very best into ‘Stanley Park in a day. After spending the day in this amazing part of Vancouver, why leave to seek a sunset when you can enjoy it right where you are?

On the Water

Adventure doesn’t end just because the sun is going down. Whether you’re an experienced paddler or enthusiastic beginner, the placid water of False Creek is the perfect spot to watch the sunset on the water.

From the Sky

Harbour Air offers evening flightseeing tours that leave the Coal Harbour terminal at 6:30pm. Ok, so this technically isn’t quite sunset, but the city, mountain and ocean panorama is unparalleled and makes for a true splurge-worthy Vancouver experience. When the golden hour is upon you, the Harbour Air terminal makes for a spectacular sunset viewing spot.
