West Vancouver’s Whytecliff Park

Island at Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver

Close to Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, Whytecliff Park is one of Metro Vancouver’s most beautiful parks, with a rugged shoreline and amazing views.

Whytecliff Park

Whytecliff Park has excellent hiking trails, a beautiful beach, an island to explore (depending on the tide), and exceptional scuba diving in the area.  The beach is mostly rocky, but there is a sandy patch.

Whytecliff Park can be a great place to spend the day, or the better part of the morning or afternoon.  Take good walking shoes, and climb the island very carefully.  From the island you can admire one of the Lower Mainland’s most spectacular 360 degree natural views.

Dogs are permitted in most areas on a leash.

Directions to Whytecliff Park
