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. Special events include summer Celebration of Light fireworks and a New Year's Day swim. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); toilets; water sports. Best for: atmosphere; partiers; sunset; swimming; walking.
