    This is a fun place all year round, but it’s much better in the summer. You can find a great spot to tan or go to one of the many summer music festivals!

  • White Rock Beach

    Alongside its lengthy boardwalk, comes 2.5 kilometres of  sand by the Pacific to get some rays. Once you get a sufficient enough tan, make your way over to Washington Avenue Grill to cool off!

  • Kits Beach

    A classic—see & be seen at this sandy beach. Try the grass if you’re looking for an alternative and make sure to stroll along the paths to take in volleyball, the views and more.

  • Cultus Lake Provincial Park

    By Vancity Buzz

    A definite favourite in the GRVD is Cultus Lake. If you make the trip for the tanning, stay for the watersides! Rumour has it that it’s always sunny in Cultus Lake.

  • Lighthouse Park Beach

    While some hiking is involved to get here, you won’t regret it! Located in West Van, whether you are tanning on the rocks or on the grass, this is definitely one of the best places.

  • Centennial Beach

    Located in Boundary Bay, Centennial Beach is raved about for its awesome sand, which goes hand in hand with tanning. It’s definitely worth the trip.

  • Crescent Beach

    Crescent Beach in South Surrey is great, if you stay long enough, you’ll enjoy 1 of the greatest views of the sunset in YVR. Afterwards, make sure to get some gelato at Martino’s.

  • Spanish Banks

    By Vancity Buzz
