Which beaches should I go?

Which beaches should I go?

1, English Bay Beach


English Bay Beach, also called First Beach, located along Beach Ave between Gilford St and Bidwell St, is the most populated beach area in Vancouver’s downtown area. The Stanley Park Seawall, a popular running and biking route, runs along the east side of the beach.







2, Kitsilano Beach


Kitsilano Beach, known as “Kits” Beach, is located on Cornwall Ave at the north end of Yew St. The Seawall runs along side the beach and Kitsilano Pool is at the west side.

Kits is family friendly, too, and great for swimmers: the waves are calm, and the beach’s park includes the awesome Kits Pool, the longest outdoor pool in Canada.




3, Ambleside Beach


Ambleside Park offers a variety of different activities for people of all ages. There is a seaside walk that offers beautiful views, and it’s dog-friendly. The park also has a children’s section and area to have picnics. And if you’re feeling a little hungry there are some wonderful dining choices.

ウエストバンクーバーにあるビーチ、Amblesideビーチ! English BayやKitsilanoに比べて、人が少なくそんなに混んでいないので、静かにゆったりしたい方におすすめです。

Try Skim boarding!

Try Skim boarding!

What exactly is Skim boarding?

Skim boarding has become an increasingly popular activity among beachgoers, water

and sports enthusiasts. Developed during the 1920s by lifeguards in Laguna Beach,

California, this sports can be performed in either a flatland or wave style. The former is done

on Inland water bodies, whereas the latter is done at the beach. While similar to surfing, skim boarders start off by running. They toss the board onto the water and skim across shallow portions of water.


Where you can skim board:

 Spanish Banks

 Jericho Beach

 Wreck Beach

 Third Beach in Stanley park

If you are going to try skim boarding you must check the tide before heading out. The tide needs to be out so that you have a flat surface to “skim” across. British-Columbia/tides/latest

Where you can buy a skim board?

Let’s try out yoga this summer!

Why is yoga good for you?

Here are some reasons why yoga is good for you.


1. Lowers stress and improves your mood.

Let go of the things that stress you and calm yourself.

A lot of beginner poses allows you to stretch and is therapeutic.


2. Lowers the risk of injury.

Exercises such as running is forceful movements which means that muscle effort is at it’s maximum and there is a high risk injury.


3. Helps you lose weight.


You may have seen people trying yoga poses before and thought, “That’s pretty basic and easy”. There are actually differing levels of intensity through different poses. When you get into the advance poses, yoga can actually turn into a pretty intense workout, especially your core.
