Beach
“A short drive or 30 minute walk from the guest suite, Jericho beach and Locarno beach/Spanish Banks are perfect for a long walk, a relaxing day of swimming at the beach, or an evening picnic. Boasting beautiful views of the North Shore mountains (if the forest fire smoke holds off!), this is truly a must-see. If you catch low-tide, you can walk out on the sand for a kilometer! ”

“Excellent views of he city, plus massive sand beaches that seem to go for miles, especially when the tide is out. Also beach volleyball. Spanish Banks, is the most westerly of he beaches [unless one chooses to continue on to the nude beaches at Wreck Beach], but Lucarno, and Jericho beaches nearer the city also benefit from the tide exposed sand.”

Italian Restaurant
$$$
“The cozy and intimate room is the perfect start to a wonderfully prepared meal. On the menu, there are a handful of dishes offered for each course; what they do, they do well. At La Quercia, diners enjoy classic dishes made with seasonal ingredients, and a changing menu. You can order from the a la carte menu or opt for a family-style experience. If you're with a couple of people, ordering family style is the best way to eat; it doesn't get better than enjoying the experience together. Complete your meal with a bottle of wine from their extensive wine list. La Quercia's family-style menu is worth the splurge and the best way to try a multitude of dishes. Local Recommendation - Book weeks in advance, this restaurant always gets book up quick.”
