POINTS OF INTEREST
Farther along Beach Avenue toward Burrard Bridge, Sunset Beach, between Thurlow and Broughton streets, is too close to the Downtown core for clean safe swimming, but is a great spot for an evening stroll. It's also a "quiet" beach, which means no amplified music. You can catch a ferry to Granville Island here. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); toilets. Best for: sunset; walking.
