Sunbathing sea lions. Premier dive spot. Short, yet breathtaking trails. Beaches!30 minutes from Vancouver.

Escape to the vanishing horizon of the Pacific Ocean, where time is measured by the rhythm of waves.

Located near West Vancouver's Horseshoe Bay neighbourhood, Whytecliff Park is home to more than 200 marine animal species and is one of the first Marine Protected Areas in Canada. You're almost guaranteed to see sea lions here!

The park offers numerous short hiking trails, sheltered beaches, tennis courts and is a popular location for underwater diving. You won't ever believe you're so close to the city of Vancouver!

Enter the park on Marine Drive and pull in to the parking lot on the left shortly after. From there you can explore on foot (it's a small park) or continue driving along Marine Drive to the other side of the park and venture out again.

Favorite spot

Cliff jumping into the ocean is so ideal here

Simple, Straightforward & Easy Access

Great spot right outside of Vancouver. Not a ton to explore but there are solid views abound. As other reviewers state, walk the rock bridge to the island for the best views.

Go Out To The Island!

My sister and I went to this park in January on a sunny day and decided to venture out to the little island. Definitely worth it! We did not plan it well with the tides so we had to wade in water up to our hips, but exploring the quaint little succulent-covered rocks of the island and seeing otters and baby birds made up for it!
