Whyte Cliff Park
A fabulous family park with green fields, a playground, a beach and spectacular views of Bowen Island, Vancouver Island and South. A summer hit for a picnic.
A little bit off the beaten track, Whyte Cliff is nestled in the Horseshoe Bay area amongst seriously expense homes. Whyte Cliff Park is a beautiful treed park with some nice open grass space for picnicking and BBQs. There is a playground, picnic covering and some tennis courts.
The very natural pebbled Whyte Cliff beach is South facing and in a half moon shape. It's a great place to pick up the morning sun and to avoid winds from the North. The swimming is fine and you will be joined by lots of scuba divers - Whyte Cliff is one of Vancouver's main scuba training grounds year round.
The beach wraps around to the Western bluff - a fine (but somewhat dangerous) exploration ground with a few trails and benches. The western cliffs (where Whyte Cliff was derived from) provide a spectacular view of Bowen Island and the ferries coming in and out of Horseshoe Bay.
Parking is limited at Whyte Cliff and things can get busy in summer. One third of the parking is typically consumed by the divers.
