Beautiful place to watch the sunset, however, please note that the fragrance of marijuana is everywhere. It seems that we could not get away from it.

I would rate this beach below average. Having experienced beautiful beaches in other parts of the world this is absolutely no comparison.

Went there with family and kids loved it. Good spot to sit and enjoy the sunset. The Cactus Club restaurant has a lovely sitting place on the patio. Walk on the sea wall is also amazing at this point.

Great place for a walk after enjoying one of Denman Street's many restaurants. Great people and dog watching, lots of places to sit and enjoy a beautiful Vancouver day (every day in Vancouver). East connect to Stanly Park Seawall.

West End

verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
