I've been spoiled with amazing beaches during my lifetime so this beach is just nice to chill out on, have a paddle and an ice-cream. There is a Cactus Club restaurant by the beach which serves good food.

We have visited here a couple of times whilst walking the Sea Wall and love it. I could sit here forever just looking out over the water and its a great place to watch the sunset. Very clean area ideal for any age.

This area is great to hang out and unwind. You have the great Vancouver scenery right in front of you: the beach, the water and the mountains. Well worth the visit.

A lovely area of Vancouver. The walk along the beach is relaxing with lovely views. Close to Stanley Park so it is a great walk to the park.

English Beach looked like a happening place with lots of restaurants and a lot of people enjoying a sunny day on the beach.

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
