English Bay Beach, Vancouver

(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Soak in the sun’s rays or go for a refreshing dip in the sea at English Bay Beach. Located on the city’s west end, the popular Vancouver beach invites visitors to soft golden sands, which meet calm waters lined with boats parked offshore. The bustling beach was home to the city’s first official lifeguard, and remains patrolled today. Facilities at the beach include kayak rental shops, two volleyball courts, swimming rafts with large slides, a beachfront cafe, and beach wheelchairs for handicapped visitors. Plan your English Bay Beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Vancouver using our Vancouver tourist route planner.
