English Bay

About This Point Of Interest

English Bay

In the heart of Vancouver, English Bay is located west of the downtown penisula and False Creek. One of the most popular beaches in the downtown area, the sands are always a hit with sun-bathers, swimmers, and nature enthusiasts enjoying the stunning views over the ocean as the sun sets on the western horizon.
English Bay also consists of the noted Vancouver Seawall, which was constructed originally to combat erosion of the foreshore at Stanley Park. Now, while still providing valuable environmental protection, the seawall is popular with cyclists, runners and rollerbladers exercising in the fresh ocean air. It is also home to A-maze-ing Laughter, a sculpture which is composed of 14 statues, each measuring 3 metres in height and weighing over 250 kilograms (551 lbs.)

Hop-On With Us


Take our Hop-On, Hop-Off PARK Route to the English Bay Beach (Stop #P12).

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
