BEACH TIME IN VANCOUVER


Waiting soooo long for summer to come :-(  Let’s head to the beach to have some fun!  8-)

With so many beautiful beaches along the North Shore, the possibilities of finding the perfect camp for your kid to enjoy under the sun are endless.

Make sure you send them with a sun hat, plenty of water and sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15, 30 if your kid has fair skin.

Beaches on the North Shore are by nature rugged from tide-line to skyline and can be described as Cobble beaches with rocky outcroppings, so wearing sandals is not a bad idea, specially for those of us used to more sandy beaches. Having said so, this is no impediment to enjoy a Summer day on the beach while surrounded by nature and in most cases beautiful villages and restaurants or food concessions.

Here are some of the beautiful beaches you can enjoy in the North Shore. Many camps do field trips to some of these beaches or, you can always head to the beach to have some family fun over the weekend:

Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver

Whitecliff Park in West Vancouver

Dundarave Beach in West Vancouver

Cates Park  in Deep Cove
