There are so many beautiful beaches around Vancouver, each with its own features, amenities, and scenery. Iona Beach Regional Park is unique in that the park, with beach, includes 13km of hiking trails, 3km of horseback riding trails, and 4km of cycling trails. Pinched between the Fraser River outlets to the Salish Sea, between Richmond and Vancouver, it offers riverfront and seaside views like nowhere else in the region.

Watch planes land at YVR airport next door, walk out along one of the jetties, watch sunsets from the sand dunes, sit around a firepit, take some Instagram-worthy photos of wildlife at the wetlands. More than 300 species of birds feed and rest at Iona Beach Regional Park so while dogs are welcome, they need to remain on leash.
