English bay beach: English bay beach is one of the most popular and crowded beach in Downtown. Specifically, it is in the west of the Downtown peninsula and false creek. Highly recommended for the beautiful sunset! Oh, and the polar bear swim!

Sunset beach: Sunset beach is a beautiful beach close to English Bay. It is located in the west end, near Burrard bridge. We recommend this for a beautiful walk and sunset viewing! And soccer!

Second beach : Lovely beach to visit inside Stanley Park. Popular for its cycling route and rest stops.
