Stanley park is located along the seawall. If the weather is good, I suggest walking (3 hours). Too lazy to walk? That’s okay, rent a bike or some rollerblades and complete the 9 kilometers faster! Along the seawall you will see the most popular beach, English bay. Catching the sunset here is wonderful.
