Let’s face it: nine months of the year in Vancouver are wet and gray. Once the sun comes out, everyone wants to visit Vancouver, particularly Kitsilano.
Kitsilano Beach recently made Reuters list of Top 10 City Beaches Around The World for an urban summer holiday. It came on sixth after hotspots including Copacabana in Rio, Waikiki in Honolulu, Cape Town’s Camps Bay and Barceloneta in Barcelona.
Here’s the listing:

Vancouver might not seem like a top beach destination, but during the warm summer months Kitsilano is the perfect spot to cool off after taking in the sites of the city. There are a number of beach volleyball courts, a playground for kids and even a salt water swimming pool. If you’re looking for something to do before or after the beach, Kitsilano is close to a number of museums, including Museum of Vancouver, the Maritime Museum and the Planetarium. Other beaches in and around Vancouver include Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks.
