There is only one kind of sunset we don't like and that's the one we missed. If you can't get enough of watching the sky turn to flaming crimson and gold, then you should find new spots to watch it all happen. We've made a list of the best oceanfront sunset walks in Vancouver that you need to enjoy with a BFF this summer.

In the summer, we are forever chasing the sun. From bright blue days to sunsets that look like a painting, we can't get enough.

In our busy schedule, it is so important to appreciate all the small moments of happiness. Unlike many other places in the country, we are lucky to have a city next to the ocean.

Honestly, it is hard to beat taking a seat in the sand and enjoying the view as the sky transforms at dusk. Plus, when you view the sunset over the water, it is almost like you get to enjoy the view twice as you see the colours reflected over the water.

Forget trying to get a glimpse of the view from your apartment's balcony. These spots will let you savour the sights without tons of buildings in the way.
