We ended up in English Bay, having taken a water taxi from Granville Island. Did not plan to visit English Bay, but someone told us to walk from the water taxi pier to Denman Street. That's what we did, and came across the area around...More

Is very close to our hotel in the West End. Lovely place to walk and relax. You can get the boat from here to get to Granville Island. You see lots of dogs being walked here.

I'm used to walk along Stanley Park and always ending at English Bay cause the view is dramatic! When sunny, it's totally worth spending time there. Cons: the oli tankers on the bay ruin the landscape

We stopped at the beach to relax a few times during our stay in Vancouver, and all of the times it had beautiful views, fairly busy with people, and was clean.

We walked along English Bay and could hear so many languages being spoken. So nice to hear residents and also tourists along the path. Be sure you are in the pedestrian path when walking!

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
