Fodor's Review

The city's best-known beach, English Bay, lies just to the east of Stanley Park's southern entrance. A long stretch of golden sand, a waterslide, volleyball courts, kayak rentals, and food trucks keep things interesting all summer. Known locally for being gay-friendly, it draws a diverse crowd. Amenities: lifeguards; water sports; food and drink; toilets; parking (fee). Best for: fireworks; partiers; kayaking; swimming; walking; sunset.
