    I only walked a couple of feet into the sea and I already couldn't stand anymore. I'm taller than the average woman so don't come here with children who are too young to swim well.

    I live a block away and literally chill at the other beach every evening. Grab a blanket, a book and pick your favourite tree to lie under. The ocean will relax you completely!

    What us there to say about the bay? Well...people comes to mind. If you want to have a chat this is the best place in Vancouver. Plus the most stunning view of the ocean. Wanna play tennis and birds!

    Best spot for fireworks in the summer. I would recommend the walk down Denman on your way down on a sunny day. Lots of great food and cafes.

    Home of the original 'cupcake' store. Forget Starbucks and head to Delaney's on Denman- 1 block away from Davie. Walk toward 2nd beach and visit the Fish House for a fancy feast.

    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!
