Travel guide book publisher Lonely Planet has named its Top 10 beaches in Canada and, not surprisingly, Kits Beach made the grade.

Singled out as Canada’s ‘best urban’ beach, Lonely Planet described our local beach as “a freewheeling nugget of Southern California chopped off and transported one thousand miles north”.

Beach volleyball is the game of choice although there are also enough grassy expanses to spread out and toss a frisbee or football. The yellow arc of sand is sugary and clean with views across the water toward Vancouver’s glass skyscrapers and the North Shore mountains opposite.

Of course Kits Beach is also home to the 137 metre saltwter Kits Pool, one of the largest of its kind in the world.
