“Great Place for a Lazy Afternoon”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Looking for a place to catch the flavour of Vancouver, English Bay is it. With sea wall to Stanley Park and local eateries close to the beach a great place to visit

“Beach in the city”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Right in the heart of the city is a great beach. Host to the Symphony of fire show , some excellent people watching, or just a place to soak up some sun. Great restaurants are just across the road.

“beautiful sunsets, amazing community”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Great place to sit after a walk around Stanley Park, have a coffee and watch the sun set, while listening to the various musicians, locals, people who gather there on any non-rainy evening. You'll see kayakers, paddle boarders, harbour seals bobbing by. So pretty!

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

On a warm day in February, lots of walkers, runners along the sea wall. Water would be too cold. Check out the sculpture people just off the beach. They make you laugh and feel good.
