Kitsilano Beach

If Vancouver is “Hollywood North,” then Kitsilano Beach, known as “Kits Beach” to locals, is our Venice Beach. Buff and bronzed bodies are sure to make their rounds, but don’t be worry, you’re sure to fit in somewhere among the mix of joggers, stroller-pushing families, sun-worshippers and your everyday loungers. Grassy patches above the tide line are perfect for tossing the disc, the tennis courts are always popular, and the beach attracts volleyball players from all over the city. And don’t forget Kits Pool where kids and adults can splash away the day in an outdoor, heated salt-water pool with a wrap-around view of the city, ocean and mountains. It’s almost three times the size of an Olympic pool. – Tourist Bureau
