Stroll along the sea wall, or enjoy the beautiful urban shore at English Bay, the most populated beach area in downtown Vancouver. Amenities at the beach include washrooms, beach wheelchairs, parking facilities, and a beach lifesaving patrol. Hire a kayak and paddle out into the beautiful bay, or enjoy a game of beach volleyball on the courts. If you happen to be here on New Year's Day and are feeling brave, consider the Polar Bear Swim, an annual winter's dip into the frigid ocean. Arrange to visit English Bay and other attractions in Vancouver using our Vancouver holiday maker app.

English Bay reviews
The place is jam-packed as people make plans to meet each other here. That brings in a lot of rubbish. People throwing breads into the water was cringe worthy! more »
Ocean, mountains, forest and beach, what a fantastic combination. Great place to do as much or as little as your heart desires. We had a great stroll talking and interacting with family. more »
