Less crowded, mostly rocky shoreline with a few logs to sit on. The far end of the beach is home to an off-leash area for dogs. Get your puppy fix, or avoid the area if that’s not your jam.

If you’re up for a challenge, the Grouse Grind is a gruelling uphill hike on an uneven but well maintained trail. You aren’t allowed to hike down, so bring enough money to have a cold beer and lunch at the top. Visit the bear rescue before taking the gondola back down.
