10 sexiest beaches now include Vancouver's Kitsilano
The sexy status may come as no surprise to many Vancouverites, who have known for some time that "Kits Beach," as the locals call it, is one of the city's hottest spots for people-watching in summer months.
Now it appears the world is waking up to some of the city's stunning attractions, and it's no longer just the stunning views of the local mountains garnering praise from sightseers.
The magazine ranks the people-watching on the prime Vancouver waterfront in the same league as more famous surfside hangouts like South Beach in Miami, Fla., Laguna Beach in Orange County, Calif., and Ka'anapali Beach in Maui, Hawaii. Kits Beach comes up third in the magazine's online slide show.
The beach, located on the shores of English Bay near the trendy Kitsilano neighbourhood, is popular with young sunbathers looking for an afternoon break. It also has the city's largest outdoor pool, beach volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, and a popular beachside bistro.
