Third Beach - Review
Get that gorgeous sun-kissed skin as you have an indulging picnic at the Third Beach- a natural sandy beach located close to the downtown area. The Stanley park’s forested area makes sure the beach is cut-off from the urban streets while the view of the Burrard Inlet is a welcome sight. The sunsets here are romantic with the skyline of Vancouver lighting up as the sun goes down while taking a dip in the water is just what you need to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.

Third Beach, Vancouver Reviews
This nearly 1,000-acre park on the tip of Vancouver's "thumb" (just north of the West End) is home to some of the city's favorite, most-visited attractions. In fact, you could easily spend more than a day here and still not see everything this urban oasis has to offer. If you want to experience the park the way the locals do, walk, cycle or jog around the nearly 20-mile-long Seawall that hugs Vancouver's waterfront. The path starts at the Vancouver Convention Centre and ends at Spanish Banks Beach Park. If you're not up for the walk, you'll find several bike rental companies near the park. With your bike, you'll be able to explore the more than 17 miles of forest trails that are much less crowded than the rest of the park. Travelers recommend biking the South Creek Trail, which leads to the lily pad-covered Beaver Lake. If you're not up for all that exercise, you can ride a hop-on, hop-off trolley or a horse-drawn carriage. Both guided tours (offered seasonally) include informational narration. Recent visitors said the park offers a great escape from the city and has one of the prettiest seawall walks around. Families with kids in tow will find plenty of family-friendly to-dos here as well, including an outdoor water park and a separate heated, outdoor pool. The park also boasts four playgrounds and a miniature train that snakes through more than a mile of forest. The Vancouver Aquarium is also nestled within the park, but costs extra. Art and history buffs will likely want to stop at Brockton Point to see the First Nation totem pole display (along the Seawall). It's estimated that some of the original totem poles were carved in the late 1880s. Consider visiting Stanley Park for one of the several big-name events it hosts throughout the year; such as Walk With the Dragon in July, Dance at Dusk (which takes place throughout the summer) and the Halloween Ghost Train in October. Along with restrooms and gift shops, there are several concession stands, food trucks and sit-down restaurants within the park. Stanley Park is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can meander for free; however, admission prices for specific attractions within the park vary. For more information, visit the Stanley Park website.
A walk to this beach brings you to a quieter beach. The food here is decent and they take cash/debit/credit - that was a plus. Big beach with lots of sun!
Drum circle, extremely beautiful sunset and mega relaxing area. I highly recommend 3rd Beach to everyone. I love it.
Great stop while you're biking and really great scenery. You can catch the best sunsets from there
Nice beach close to the rain forest in the Park. Enjoyable place especially after longer walk.
