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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5Jericho Beach Star Rating

5 Star Rating Take public transportation if you can here in the summer. The parking situation is tight. Besides that the beach is beautiful and one of the few Sandy beaches in Vancouver. There’s usually always something going on here in the summer so keep up to date on current events! I’ve been to afloat concert here and it was an amazing experience.

5 Star Rating A lovely, wide beach, perfect for a family outing. We showed up first thing in the morning, just before 8 am, and the beach was nearly empty and quite clean. There are outdoor showers to clean yourself off once your done near the building at the main parking lot.

4 Star Rating Saw lots of people there after 2 cloudy and rainy days, picnics, Barbecues, and sunbathing. It’s a nice place to have a relaxing family time.

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.

5 Star Rating Space.....or people. Lots of spots. Free parking. Be there by 11.....for reals. Beach is very romantic at night. Very. Dark by 10. Police do back & forth with ATV after but don't hassle you if you are discreetly cuddling. Summer romance. Yee-ha!!
