Vancouver Hiking Trails RatingThe Kitsilano beaches begin as soon as you cross the Burrard Bridge and enter the residential paradise of Kitsilano. Though only this first beach is named Kitsilano Beach, you can walk from one beach to the next via some short and scenic residential detours. So you can connect the beautiful Kitsilano Beach to Jericho Beach, then Locarno Beach then Spanish Bank Beach.

Walking them all will add up to about 8k (one way) of wonderfully varied beaches, parks, marinas, the enormous Kits Pool and endless vantage points to English Bay and Burrard Inlet. This is not a hiking route but rather a fantastic beach walk anytime of the year.

With the changing weather and seasons change the wonderful feel you get walking around Vancouver.  There are plenty of places to park near all of the various parks and beaches as well as the large pay parking lot on Arbutus Street next to the beach. Kitsilano is a wonderful place to go for a coffee or dinner and there are endless restaurants just a few blocks from the beach.
