There is always a little confusion about the 3 "Wests" of Vancouver.
This page is for the "west side" of Vancouver. There is also the West End of Vancouver which is the area west of the downtown business core, adjacent to Stanley Park.

And third, there is the City of West Vancouver which is located to the Northwest across Burrard Inlet. It is accessible by crossing the Lions Gate Bridge and heading west along various routes.

The westside of Vancouver is the area west of Main Street (some will argue that it is West of Cambie Street and others West of Oak Street) just south of the main Downtown Business District. It is bordered on the South by the Fraser River, to the East by the East Side of Vancouver, to the North by the Granville Island/False Creek area and to the West by the Straight of Georgia.

The westside includes the following neighbourhoods: Granville Island, Fairview, Mount Pleasant, Kitsilano, West Point Grey, University of British Columbia (UBC), Dunbar-Southlands, Arbutus Ridge, Shaughnessy, Oakridge, South Cambie, Kerrisdale and Marpole.

Many of Vancouver's most popular attractions are in the westside and University of British Columbia Endowment Lands areas.

The westside is primarily a residential area with almost no Hotels. Primary shopping areas of the westside are Granville Island (under Granville Bridge,) the South Granville Rise (Fairview neighbourhood) shopping district from the South end of the Granville Bridge south to 16th Avenue, 4th Avenue in Kitsilano, the Kerrisdale shopping area including 41st Avenue and West Boulevard, the Marpole shopping area from 63rd and Granville south to 72nd Avenue, the Arbutus Mall at 29th and Arbutus and the Dunbar shopping area from 16th and Dunbar south to 41st Avenue.

Beaches in the westside and UBC area: Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, Locarno Beach, Spanish Banks Beach and Wreck Beach at UBC

The dividing street between Eastside and Westside Vancouver is Main Street (actually by street address it is 2 blocks West of Main.) An address of 1877 West 10th Avenue would place you near Burrard Street and 1877 East 10th Avenue would be East of Main Street near Victoria Drive.
