English Bay has amazing walkways and caters to all ages and can facilitate anyone with physical limitations. The enjoyment of strolling along a level walkway and taking in the sights is truly wonderful!!

Probably better for walking and relaxing than swimming given the time of year when I was there - a wonderful beach close to the city and good for a family picnic.

What a lovely beach and park to stop for a while, relax and have a bite to eat at the beach. We cycled here and brought our lunch and it was just the perfect spot to enjoy it with such amazing views!

The place is a heaven in a sunny day, it has a stunning beach, pedestrian track and cycling track that takes you to the seawall, in addition to nice seats and refreshment stations along the road. We have spent amazing 3hours enjoying the beautiful weather...More

Really close to downtown, it´s a good place for sunset watching. You can do the shoreline walk around Stanley Park and finish it here. I like calm atmosphere on this beach, people are just enjoying pure nature. Definitely you shouldn´t miss this place.

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
