Chill out at one of Vancouver’s Famous Beaches
Vancouver is known for its stunning natural beauty, including its numerous breathtaking beaches. You can smoke or vape cannabis at any beach in BC as long as tobacco smoking is permitted.
Here are some of the most popular beaches in Vancouver:
Wreck Beach (Vancouver’s Nude Beach): This beach is unique as it’s Canada’s first and largest, legal, clothing-optional beach. Located near the University of British Columbia (UBC), Wreck Beach has a bohemian vibe and is known for its stunning sunsets. It’s named for the visible wreckage of a beached ship that was visible until the 1930s.
Kitsilano Beach: Often referred to as “Kits Beach,” this is one of the most popular beaches in Vancouver. It’s located on the city’s west side and is known for its vibrant atmosphere. Kits Beach has a rich history dating back to the early 20th century when it was a popular destination for the city’s burgeoning middle class. The Kitsilano Showboat, a unique outdoor stage, has been hosting free entertainment since 1935.
Jericho Beach: This beach is a bit more laid-back compared to Kits and English Bay. It’s a great spot for sailing, windsurfing, and other water sports. Jericho Beach was originally the point of arrival for many indigenous people traveling by canoe from the nearby village of Snauq. Later, it became a seaplane base and then a training center during World War II.
English Bay Beach: Also known as “First Beach,” this is the most populated beach area in Vancouver’s downtown area. It’s the hub of the annual Celebration of Light, a massive international fireworks competition. English Bay Beach has been a gathering place for Vancouverites since the city’s early days, and it was one of the first areas where the city expanded in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Spanish Banks Beach: Located further west along the coastline from Jericho, Spanish Banks is a series of beaches that are especially popular when the tide goes out, leaving wide expanses of sand to explore. The beach is named after the Spanish explorers who arrived there in 1792.
Second Beach: Located in Stanley Park, Second Beach is a family-friendly spot with a playground and heated outdoor pool. It’s a popular spot for picnics and barbecues.
Third Beach: Also located in Stanley Park, Third Beach is a bit more secluded and is a popular spot for sunset watchers.
Remember, while cannabis is legal, it’s important to consume responsibly and respect the rights and comfort of others enjoying these public spaces.

My choice for the best Chinese food in Vancouver hands down is Peaceful Restaurant. With 4 locations in the Vancouver area, you won’t have a hard time getting to one. Every time I go to Vancouver, I always visit their Broadway location, because this is the spot that the TV show Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives featured, and I just can’t bring myself to try one of their other locations.
Book a Ganja Yoga Session
Who knew you could fuse fitness with fun during your cannabis vacation in Vancouver? The history of cannabis and yoga dates back centuries, both having roots in ancient India. Practitioners have long believed that cannabis can deepen their yoga practice, helping them delve further into postures, stretching, and meditation. Adding cannabis to the mix can intensify the sensory experience of movement, promote relaxation, and help the mind focus more intently on postures and breathwork. Ganja Yoga sessions in Vancouver are available, but are more of a pop up type of event, the best place to find them is on Everbrite.
