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.

  • Terrific location to stop and smell the roses....I mean see the sunset. Located near lots of restaurant and bar options. 
  • Bella per una passeggiata ,specie in primo pomeriggio. Puoi anche girare in bicicletta,e arrivare a piedi a Stanley park. 
  • 不下去玩海水就好了,因為海水有點髒,但坐在沙灘上看景色非常放鬆美麗,也有很多小孩的身影,可以去看日落的好地方,從這個方向所望去蔓延的山和日落的顏色,真的很美
