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

Crescent Beach is a secluded 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 get here.

In fact, it feels like a mini-Cape Cod with all the houses along the boardwalk.

During the summer months, Crescent Beach is usually busy and lively – filled with locals and tourists eating fish and chips by the beach and enjoying themselves on the beaches.

When it’s fall and winter, it’s a great place to watch storms that are much closer to Vancouver than Tofino.

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

And if a day trip is not long enough for you, then there are a handful of beachy Airbnbs you can stay at to make a weekend out of it. Here are a few places and things to do in Crescent Beach:
