Vancouver Beaches: A Photo Essay

English Bay Beach

The following photo essay was contributed by local Vancouver photographer Clayton Perry, exclusively for Inside Vancouver. In this photo essay Clayton takes a look at beaches around Vancouver.

When I was asked to do a photo-essay on Vancouver’s beaches, I was a little worried…to be honest, I didn’t think that I had enough images to make it worth the while and fall had already snuck up on us so the chance of me getting any good images this year is basically gone with the wind as it were…but as I looked through my database of images, I began to realize that I have quite a few images of beaches around the Vancouver area. I know there are literally dozens of great beaches and swimming holes around the Lower Mainland and I am sure that I am going to miss some of your favourites. Although we’re not really “world famous” for our beaches, at least not as much as we are for our mountains, I think Vancouver has some incredible places to lay your towel down, and people watching on the Kits Beach boardwalk rivals an afternoon on Venice Beach any summer day.

Jules Moore -- The Waldorf Hotel

From a beautiful stone path that wraps around the entire city to character houses to some of the best food in the world, Vancouver is a very diverse city. Each of the various neighbourhoods has its own cultural identity, complete with its own landmarks, distinct food offerings and aesthetic. It would be exceedingly difficult to experience all that Vancouver has to offer in one short visit as a traveling tourist.
