Located about 5 kilometres west of downtown Vancouver, Jericho Park boasts a beautiful expansive sandy beach. Jericho Beach and its adjoining beaches are less crowded than the downtown beaches making it worth the bus ride to get there.

In addition to its great beaches, Jericho Beach Park features a large expanse of green space and picnic facilities. It is contiguous with Locarno Beach Park and Spanish Banks Beach Park, resulting in a 3 kilometre stretch of beautiful sandy beach — the longest continuous beach in Vancouver! From any of these 3 beaches, you are treated to beautiful, expansive views toward Howe Sound, the North Shore mountains and back towards downtown Vancouver.

Park amenities include sports fields, a concession stand and public washrooms. Walking trails and picnic areas are located throughout the park. Spanish Banks Beach to the west is a popular spot for playing beach volleyball. As you can see from the pictures, these beaches are fairly quiet, especially compared to those located closer to downtown.

5 Star Rating Gorgeous beach and park. There is a parking lot for a fee but you can find free parking on the street. There is a hill with lots of rabbits, very cute. Perfect harmony with the nature. Highly recommended visit here.
