    Great place to stop for a drink after cycling round Stanley Park, especially if you don't want to pay park kiosk prices.

    Easily the best beach in the city. Long enough that you can usually find space on a hot day. Go down the slide!

    It's a shame they have a lot of rules. You can barely enjoy being there. The only thing that make it worth is the sunset and the great atmosphere people bring you there.

    Amazing area but too bad putting in cactus club where there should be ice cream vendors for beach goers. Who eats a sit down meal at a beach. My 2 cents. Support Vancouver parks not corporate power!

    English Bay keeps getting better and better. A little more crowded in 2011, as compared to the 1930's, but still one of thee best places to relax and sun.
