Third Beach is one of Vancouver’s naturally sandy beaches, located close to the downtown core. Stanley Park’s forest looms behind this nearly hidden treasure of a spot, shielding dippers and tanners from urban noise. Third Beach lies between Ferguson Point and Siwash Rock, along the Stanley Park Seawall. In the daytime Third Beach is a great spot for quiet bathing, picnic suppers and in the evening it's sunsets, offer incomparable vistas. The sunset will take place at 8:57....this photo walk will allow time to photograph both the blue and golden hours.

In addition, every sunny Tuesday evening during the summer, music lovers and bongo-drumming dudes and dudettes get together at Third Beach to celebrate the sunset. The drum circle was first started by Vancouver local, Brahm Olszynko who started a weekly jam 8 years ago with just 3 drums and 4 people. Now, the drum circle has expanded to host hundreds of people in search of a good beat.
