The nicest beach in
Why locals love it
Second Beach is known for its relaxed vibe, its alternative vibe, and its "anything-goes" attitude. It's kind of like Wreck Beach...but, without all of the naked people (there are some topless women there from time-to-time). It's family friendly.
Why you should visit it
It's a great last-stop on your trip around Stanley Park, and it is also a great place to get some good views of the ocean without the crowds of English Bay. You can come here and be, or really do (as long as you're not obnoxious) anything you want.
Parking is located close-by. If you chose to walk/bike, be aware that you can only walk in one direction on the trail.
