As an update, Kelvin Grove beach park in Lions Bay is now open only to scuba divers who live in Lions Bay, and their guests. Village Council decided this in June, 2009. The reason is that the beach is tiny, and lacks change-rooms and washrooms to accommodate diving groups. Too many divers were coming back and changing at their cars and urinating around the parking lot where residents and their children could see them. The Village Council hopes that divers who are residents will keep their guests from doing this sort of thing. There are now 3 spots that are visitor parking, for up to 3 hours. No permit required. Whytecliff or Porteau Cove are good alternatives.
