Stroll along the sea wall, or enjoy the beautiful urban shore at English Bay, the most populated beach area in downtown Vancouver. Amenities at the beach include washrooms, beach wheelchairs, parking facilities, and a beach lifesaving patrol. Hire a kayak and paddle out into the beautiful bay, or enjoy a game of beach volleyball on the courts. If you happen to be here on New Year's Day and are feeling brave, consider the Polar Bear Swim, an annual winter's dip into the frigid ocean.
