Crescent Beach is a cute seaside town less than 1 hour from Vancouver

Oct 30 2021, 8:57 pm

Crescent Beach is an out-of-the-way corner of Surrey near White Rock that has its own beach town vibe. It really feels like you’re a world away from Vancouver when you come here.

In fact, with all the homes lining the beachfront walkway, it feels like a mini-Cape Cod.

In the summer months, Crescent Beach is usually bustling and vibrant – filled with locals and tourists eating fish and chips beachside and chilling on the beaches.

When it’s fall and winter, it’s a great storm-watching spot that’s much closer to Vancouver than Tofino.

Find a spot to park your car and walk down Beecher Street to scope out where you want to grab your coffee, lunch, or dinner that day.

And, if a day-trip isn’t long enough for you, then there are a handful of beachy Airbnbs you can stay at to make a weekend of it. Here are a few spots and things you have to do in Crescent Beach:
