About 4 km form Dundarave to far end of Ambleside. Great views of Stanley Park and Vancouver. Coffee shops of the path in several spots.

This is a peaceful place for a walk alone or with family. The walking trail is quite well built and it's easy to walk.

My wife and I walk the West Van sea wall at least once a month. We park near Park Royal Shopping Centre and go past the soccer fields to Ambleside Beach. From there we make our way to the sea wall.

It's a nice easy walk with gorgeous water views and interesting art work and galleries. Some informative historic plaques as well to linger at, or watch people crabbing from the pier.

A must for both visitors and locals. Well kept pathways, and quieter vibe. Even has an adjacent dog path to keep the main pathway pet free, which is so great. And parking is free all along with the adjacent streets, a rare thing in Greater Vancouver.

We love walking the Seawall in any weather condition. Good place for taking photos of views like Mount Baker with Lions gate in the foreground, Eagles on the trees, children playing, doggy park, especially the sunsets.

It doesn't get the 5 stars only because it's not a loop. But those first 4 stars are for the full sunshine all along the path, the waves crashing so close to your elbow, the little beaches, the great coffee shops right nearby, the doggie zone where these creatures remind us how to be free, the pool and ponds, the...

Great scenery of the West Vancouver harbour. The pathway is always in excellent condition. I walk the seawall 3 times per week.
