“Must-do amazing stroll in Vancouver, not to be missed!”
Review of Vancouver Seawall

Reviewed 13 September 2018

The Vancouver Seawall is a stunningly beautiful path that runs around parts of city and Stanley Park, dubbed “the world's longest uninterrupted waterfront path” at 28 km. And, it’s free. The path is well-paved, and the Stanley Park part of the path is divided between walkers/joggers (outside track along the water) and bikers/skaters (inside track). The bikers/skaters track can be quite busy with a wide variety of travelers from serious athletes to meandering groups. As a walker, I very much appreciated the traffic divide; you can walk casually and take pictures at leisure. Tip: if you’re a walker, be careful to look both ways before crossing the bikers/skater path into the interior of Stanley Park. The pictures from the path are amazing and vary at different points along the route, both the Stanley Park portion and the broader path: the Vancouver skyline, Coal Harbor, Burrard Inlet, Brockton Point Lighthouse, English Bay, activity in the water (seaplanes, boats, ships, etc.), North Vancouver and the mountains behind it, Lions Gate Bridge, False Creek, Granville Island, and so much more. You can also access Stanley Park’s outer perimeter attractions from the path. If your visiting Vancouver, you must take the time to get over to Stanley Park and walk part of the path—you’ll get great exercise, see some interesting people, and get some of the most amazing pictures. Highly recommended.

There is so much to see. Fantastic places to take pictures. Absolutely loved this seawall and the walking path. You could circle the entire island. Particularly nice from the totems to the bridge, then again by English bay and the beach!
Do it! Life’s short!

Vancouver Seawall is part of Stanley Park and a must visit/ride. We hired bikes and took our time riding through the park. The seawall section has areas to pull over for a break or to take photographs. The scenery changes so there is plenty of scope for forest or ocean photography.

We rented bikes and biked around the Seawall. Great to see the whole route. It was a busy long weekend but still not too crazy.
