“A great place to with a lot to see and do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

English Bay is a beautiful place to spend a few hours with a enormous number of activities you can do like hiking, cycling, running, swimming, getting a tend, seeing the people, etc! A must do for sure.
The atmosphere is incredible. One of the most beautiful sunset I've ever seeing!

“balancing stones”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Walking around English Bay was one of the highlights of our trip to Vancouver. We especially liked the balancing stones that someone places along the waters edge. The kids really thought it was cool.

“Best Location for a Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

actually I live here and it always surprises me that tourist often don't find their way to English Bay. Go there for dinner and to watch the sunset. There are several great restaurants/pubs nearby and it's just the perfect place to watch the sun go down over the water and mountains.
