Here's a spreadsheet of every nonstop ('direct') flight from Vancouver and surrounding cities to somewhere with a beach, sorted by the number of hours to fly there

A beach

I've created a spreadsheet that lists every nonstop ('direct') flight from Vancouver to somewhere with a beach, sorted by the number of hours it takes to fly there.

The spreadsheet also lists the scheduled airlines, as well as the days of the week you can find the nonstop flights.

And yes, there is a difference between a nonstop flight and direct flight. But pretty much everyone, outside of the travel industry, uses the word 'direct' to mean a flight with zero stops.

Flights from Abbotsford, Victoria, and Comox are also listed under 'Vancouver'.

In the same spreadsheet you can also find the same info for all other major cities in Canada, which might help with planning trips alongside friends or family members in different cities.

The Spreadsheet

Depending on your browser, Google Sheets may start you off in the wrong worksheet (Calgary). You may need to click on Vancouver (YVR) at the top or bottom of the spreadsheet.

Flights from Abbotsford, Victoria, and Comox are also listed in the same worksheet as 'Vancouver' (scroll down below the Vancouver flights)

You should see a list of different Canadian cities to choose from at at the top or bottom of the spreadsheet.

Things It Might Be Useful For

• If you live in the Vancouver area there are 22 destinations with a beach that you can reach with a direct flight. Meanwhile someone living in Winnipeg or Halifax has about 12 such options. Toronto has over 60.

So if you're looking to coordinate a beach vacation with a friend or family member that lives somewhere else in Canada you may want to start by looking at the available destinations from the city with the least number of options.

Or, those same friends and family may be able to find a connecting flight through Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, or Montreal (the 4 major hub cities).

Tell them to try searching from their city using the same days of the week that the airlines fly from those major hub cities. This will give them the best chance of finding a 1-stop flight through Canada.

• If you're looking into package deals, such as all inclusive packages, those packages will have direct flights on the same days shown in this spreadsheet.

For example, if WestJet has direct flights on Thursdays, you'll be able to find an all inclusive package with WestJet Vacations on a Thursday that also has direct flights.

The same goes for Air Canada / Air Canada Vacations. And Sunwing / Sunwing Vacations.
