Soak in the sun’s rays or go for a refreshing dip in the sea at English Bay Beach. Located on the city’s west end, the popular Vancouver beach invites visitors to soft golden sands, which meet calm waters lined with boats parked offshore. The bustling beach was home to the city’s first official lifeguard, and remains patrolled today. Facilities at the beach include kayak rental shops, two volleyball courts, swimming rafts with large slides, a beachfront cafe, and beach wheelchairs for handicapped visitors.

English Bay Beach reviews
Nice place to get your feet wet and watch the city in action. You can also swim if you're adventurous or very hot.

We like to go there. We went many times already since we moved here because it was my husband favorite beach when he used to live in that area. We like to rent bicycles and go to Stanly park then back to take a rest at the beach. We just had a wonderful night watched fireworks so gorgeous sunset. We always got lucky to find parking spot so no problem for us. Perfect beach to relaxing for the whole family
Literally the best sunset I have ever seen in my life. Most romantic way to watch the day end. Tons of restaurants nearby or an LC if you want to grab some drinks. Water is cold as all get out in Sept but a therapeutic dip to practice your deep breathing and meditation. Cannot believe this sunset.
