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.

Amazing

Stumbled across this gem of a spot. Beautiful views. Not much of a hike around but beautiful views to relax and see!

Super fun in the summer to go cliff jumping off about 30-40 feet! Totally cool spot as we even had a few sea lions hanging out with us in the water!

I loved this place! There were some awesome cliff jumping spots on the right side of the peninsula, and we spent all day hanging out in the sun. Only negative comment would be the number of people at the beach, but of course that's out of anyone's control - beautiful little getaway that is totally accessible from the city by transit :)
