Vancouver have been blessed with geographical location. It is a Canada’s gateway to Pacific, with business and trade flowing through it. But for a regular citizen, what is more important, probably, is that the location is just incredibly beautiful, with so many places to go and things to see. Beaches, mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes – almost anything you can wish for is just a short drive from the city.
I grew up on shores of Black Sea, the smell of salty sea water, the sound of crushing waves, feeling a light sea breeze is something that got deep into my DNA. I am really happy that Vancouver offers so many great places to enjoy the ocean.
One of my favorite places is a chain of beaches in Vancouver’s Kitsilano – West Point Grey neighborhoods. It is a great place to walk or cycle or do anything you want, that allows to enjoy beautiful ocean scenery with spectacular mountains in the background.
To me it feels like a perfect place to enjoy ocean just outside of downtown. And it has a free parking!
