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