Jericho Beach ~
Is a Vancouver beach, located west of the seaside neighbourhood of Kitsilano.
It is surrounded by Jericho Beach Park, a grassy area with a pond, which is a picnic destination.
In the local indigenous Squamish Native language, Jericho Beach is iy'a'l'mexw meaning "good land" Jericho Beach is the home of the Jericho Sailing Centre Association
So many wonderful memories of walking along the path, from summer all through fall. All year-round, Jericho provides a phenomenal view of Stanley Park, West Van, and beyond. In the evening, you can see distant lights at the top of Cypress ski hill, and around October, the mountains get a dusting of snow.
Definitely a bustling spot in the summer time! Vancouverites and visitors congregate on the shores, soaking up sun and dipping their toes in the ocean. Take a stroll along the pathway and grab an ice cream at one of the booths. There are sail boats, kayakers, windsurfers, and paddleboarders out on the water especially on clear days.
This is one of the best places to watch the sunset either on your own or with company, while sitting on a large driftwood log, feeling silky sand between your toes. By far one of my favourite hang outs as a kid, in Vancouver city!
