“Sunset!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Best sunset ever! We always go on a patio first then go on the beach to watch the sun go down.

“Ahhh...Sunset on English Bay...”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

When I have friends come visit me in Vancouver, I always take them to English Bay for sunset. Smart locals make a reservation at Milestones on English Bay for sunset - can't beat the view and the food is great (delicious, not too pricey - great value for the location). This is also the start of our famous Stanley Park seawall, a roughly 8km/5.5 mile bicycle/inline skating/running path that goes around Stanley Park. The views are pretty incredible. We also have a huge polar-bear swim at English Bay every year on January 1st. Another wonderful "bucket list" thing to do is book a boat tour for any one of the nights where we have our "Symphony of Fire" fireworks competition - so worth it. Another thing that is great to do from English Bay is to catch the local seabus across to Granville island (the tiny boat trip in and of itself is worth the nominal fee just for the views).

“Wonderful place to play”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Walk the seawall ... enjoy all the activities ie bikes, roller blades, skate boards, run, jog, walk or just people watch and bask in the sun. Take your pick with the sun shining you can't beat this place.
