Crescent Beach - Surrey
Activity:Crescent Beach is located in South Surrey, and for our family is a relaxing, low-key alternative to the hustle and bustle of nearby White Rock Beach in the summer. It's a great place for playing on the beach, swimming, kite flying, and looking for clams and crabs. It's also a great place for fish and chips. There's a pleasant gravel path that runs parallel to the beach in front of all the quaint beach-front cottages.
Age group:All ages.
Expense rating:Free, even parking.
:Nice alternative to hustle and bustle of White Rock. Great beach when the tide is out or in.
:There is sometimes quite a current that runs parallel to beach, so beware when the kids are swimming.
