Great sunset. We walked down around 9:30 pm to sit and enjoy the sunset. It was very cool! Lots of people enjoying the water, the view, the beautiful evening. Worth going to relax and enjoy the site.

English Bay is blessed with natural beauty and a plethora of good eateries overlooking the water. The seawall runs right around the bay for a great stroll or bike ride.

Long and pretty bay. Large logs have been left on the beach for people to sit on. Lots of street entertainers on a Summer evening so good atmosphere

Very chill and gorgeous spot to hang out on a warm day with the family. The kids enjoyed the tide pools during low tide. Lots of benches to sit along the seawall. Great place for a stroll and take in the water views.

English Bay lis like a beach you would find in a tropical region including palm trees! Sandy beaches and attractions through out the year like the fireworks celebration in the summer that attracts tens of thousands.

This area of Vancouver is awesome. On a beautiful day, plan to spend the afternoon. There are plenty of restaurants and fast-type food nearby. Walk up Davie or down Denman to explore the neighborhood.

Walked along the water, it’s always busy with people but there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view. Great place to watch the sunset.

Lots of good people watching and beautiful views of Kits and West Vancouver. The intrepid can jump in for a swim. Very popular hangout.

Nice clean beach to walk along or to relax on. There are logs places along for a bit of privacy. A few places to eat too. Good views for photos.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
