Fun Downtown Beach

English Bay Beach is the busiest beach in the downtown Vancouver area. Also called First Beach by the locals, English Bay Beach offers plenty of fun waterfront activities to enjoy all year around.

There are two sand volleyball courts on the beach, along with a swimming raft with big slide. For those who want to explore the shoreline from atop the water, there are also kayak rentals available. On the east side of the beach is a biking route that is ideal for jogging or for walking.

The Cactus Club Café is located right on the beach, so it's ideal if you want to grab a bite to eat while you're enjoying your time on the sandy shores.
