Uh, we're actually #9 on that list. Which is dead last.
Guess they didn't go to Wreck.

I think the idea is that the beach is actually in (or close to) the downtown.

Is there a counterpunch reference that proves the linked article is incorrect where it clearly states Kits is #8?

8. Kitsilano Beach (Vancouver, British Columbia)

Vancouver is consistently ranked among the most liveable conurbations in the world and you'd have to think that the 18 kilometers of beaches within its city limits don't hurt its rep.

Kitsilano or "Kits" is one of the most popular, both with beach bums and sporty types who balk at the idea of wasting too much time on a towel.

Activities include 10 tennis courts and two basketball courts. At 137 meters, Kitsilano's saltwater pool is the largest in Canada.

Lowdown (5-point system)

Cleanliness: 3 - Gray sand and often murky water don't give the best impression, but regular beach cleanups and a smoking ban ensure minimal trash.

Visual stimulus: 4 - Snow-capped mountains, Vancouver's striking skyline and athletic bodies all catch the eye.

Food/drink: 4 - The upmarket neighborhood of Kitsilano is home to great restaurants. The Boathouse in particular is renowned for its waterfront drinking and dining.

Safe swimming: 4 - The water is clean and the swimming is safe. It can get mighty cold, however.

Party factor: 3 - The cluster of bars and restaurants over the road from the beach make Kits a lively place to unwind.

Do you still have to be a pimp to play basketball at Kits beach?

Sunset beach closed for Ecoli

Just sayin….

Oh, and we are 7th because Brightons hour drive from London hardly makes it a "city beach", which was the qualifier on the useless list.

PS this is a beach. Not a city beach though, so I'm ok with it not being on the list.

Seems more like a list of beaches to avoid.

I know it's a little known fact, but there is more than one city in the UK ;)

4. Brighton Beach (UK)
Brighton's proximity to the British capital has earned it a reputation as a kind of "London on Sea."

I'm just reading the list.

the beach looks nice if you like rocks.
