Some of the world's best cities are on the sea – step forward Rio, Sydney and San Fran – and Vancouver is a very worthy member of this club. From the heart of the city, Vancouverites are within easy reach of the rolling Pacific waves while at the same time catching a glimpse of distant snow-dusted mountains between the shiny towers of downtown. Add to this the burgeoning foodie scene and artistic neighbourhoods and Canada's 'third city' makes a viable bid for the top spot. On sunny days, locals and travellers alike flock to the city beaches where volleyball teams jostle for space with picnicking families,
sun worshippers and the toned and tan water sports crowd. Popular Kitsilano Beach even boasts a huge heated outdoor pool overlooking the city, Pacific Ocean and mountains behind.
