Take a beautiful walk, or ride a bike, or drive your car around English Bay by following the shoreline on the mainland side. If you're walking or riding a bike you can take one of the two ferries that operate from under the mainland side of the Burrard and Granville Bridges. These little ferries will take you to Granville Island where you can continue your walk/ride around English Bay all the way to the Maritime Museum. Note: Only the ferry under the Granville Bridge takes bikes. This a great way to spend a day and enjoy the view from both sides of English Bay. P.S. Don't miss the Public Market on Granville Island.

Scenic area great for a leisurely walk. Marvel at the giant Inukshuk structure and strike a pose with the "A-maze-ing Laughter" bronze figures. Nearby Denman St has a host of ethnic foods to draw you in.

English Beach is not brilliant but very good for a city. The walk to the south side of Stanley Park is rewarding. There are quite a few cafes, bars and restaurants nearby in Denman Street. Do not miss the incredible A-Mazeing statue display as this is guaranteed to give you a smile! The actual English Bay has quite a few tankers waiting for loading and unloading.

This is a well used area with beach volleyball, walkers, runners, skaters and cyclists and is the ideal place to watch the sun go down over Kitsilano.
