      Another charming beach that the city of Vancouver has to offer is Jericho Beach, which is wide as it is long. When you go to see this beach, be ready for a long walk. I myself make sure that I’m wearing rubber shoes instead of flip flops since your ankles will surely hurt if you wear the latter.

      Just like other beaches in Vancouver, the color of the sand is light brown at Jericho Beach. Part of this beach is Jericho Park, which is marked by a pond. This gives Jericho a character of its


      own.

      Unlike Wreck Beach, for example, which is often visited by nudist groups, Jericho Beach is quite the opposite. It is a beach for wholesome family fun, not for sexual exploits. Jericho does not have the breathtaking nature trails that Wreck has, but what it does not have, it makes up for by offering facilities that the whole family would enjoy.

      If you want to go for a swim, go to the eastern part of the beach for maximum pleasure. On the other hand, if you plan to go sail boating or wind surfing, the best part would be ...


      • the western end.

        Jericho Beach is replete with picnic tables and spots where families can easily set up their barbecue. It is typical to set up a tent on the picnic ground so some people can seek a shade from the heat of the sun, which can get rather sweltering in summer. Tennis and volleyball courts also abound.

        There’s also a yacht club at Jericho. Concession stands are located on the east section of the beach. There are a plenty of washrooms. In fact, there is even a hostel around for those who want to

        stay at Jericho for a while to savor the view. A shared room for six people typical costs around Canadian $25 per head.

        Between Jericho beach and the pristine waters is the North Shore mountains which look so majestic. Who says you have to go to Italy or Greece in order to sample a Mediterranean style beach resort?

        Just behind the Jericho beach area are beautiful, rather expensive looking houses. It’s just beyond me to imagine how much these houses cost these days. I believe all I can afford is to look at the stylish architecture.
