Third Beach is one of Vancouver’s naturally sandy beaches, located close to the downtown core. Stanley Park’s forest looms behind this nearly hidden treasure of a spot, shielding dippers and tanners from urban noise. This beach is a great spot for quiet bathing, picnic suppers and sunsets. Located on the Stanley Park Seawall system, this beach has a concession, barbeques are permitted, with pay parking and lifeguarded Victoria Day (late May) to Labour Day (early September).

Pack a picnic, bring some tools for digging, and make a family evening of it!
