Point Grey

Point Grey

Point Grey is one of Vancouver's older neighbourhoods, with many long-time residents. The area is known for two of the city's popular beaches, Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks. Both beaches are great for watching the sunset, over English Bay and the mountains. Point Grey Village serves as the area's shopping district, where many independently owned businesses contribute to a village-like atmosphere. Point Grey runs along English Bay, between the University of British Columbia and Kitsilano.
