Crescent Beach is a beachside community within South Surrey, British Columbia next to Boundary Bay and Mud Bay across from Delta, British Columbia.
Crescent Beach History
Crescent Beach dates back to 1909 when development of the Great Northern Railway first made the beach easily accessible to the public. In 1912, this area was promoted as a resort area complete with a trendy hotel, pier and train station. One year later, dikes were built to prevent flooding and allow for development of the surrounding neighbourhood. Today, the dikes are used as a waterfront pathway which stretches from one end of the beach to the other.

Crescent Beach Sunsets
Crescent Beach is a great place to catch the sunset in the evening. You’ll find many people down at the beach walking along the waterfront walkway and watching the sunset most clear evenings.
There is also plenty of free parking at Crescent Beach making it a great alternative to White Rock Beach where there is paid parking.
If the tide is out you can catch some great sunset pictures with the tide pools in the foreground. Another popular spot for photographers is the “Crescent Beach Tree” and the pier at the north end of the beach.
