If there’s one thing I love about Vancouver, it is of the many beaches we have here. One of my favourite places to visit is Spanish Banks, located along Northwest Marine Drive, west of Tolmie St. Spanish Banks is a series of beaches and it is gorgeous throughout all the seasons, offering so many things to do, including picnic opportunities, swimming, and beach volleyball. They also have free parking, with many spots available making it more accessible in that way. This beach also tends to be quieter, making it very family friendly and relaxing. Spanish Banks is one of the best places to capture the beautiful sunsets, because of it’s beautiful panoramic view of the city landscape and the mountains.
