Sunset Beach, Vancouver Reviews

  • There is a reason why it's called the Sunset Beach. The view is gorgeous during dusk. The yellow lights of sunset and silhouette of landscape are nice to watch.

  • Great beach to tan on the sand, okay games on the field and of course watch the sunset. A lot of events are also hosted here which adds to the already fabulous vibe it has.

  • It definitely lives up to its name. A nice place to sit and watch the water or the city in any weather. Just be sure to bring an umbrella or blanket with you when it is raining. :)

  • A pretty beach for a picnic as there is a large grassy area. The sand isn't very nice, it's fairly rocky so it's not really the best beach for swimming, but rather a great place to spend a sunny afternoon. There are public washrooms, an outdoor shower, and a food stand that offers basic beach eats.

  • This evening it was very foggy, lights looked hazy. Fortunately, I found my way to Bidwell & Beach. While walking I felt like a blind person. During summer this is a wonderful area to spend time relaxing next to a log, listening to waves splash against the shore. Beautiful spot
