  • Real relaxing spot in Vancouver. Eat, drink, paddle, sunbath, chill, people watch or listen to music. Perfect on a sunny day!

  • A great place to bring people visiting the city. Aim for a sunny day though, it's not half as nice when you can't get a good look around the island.

  • Great people and food. Awesome experience

  • One of the best place to visit in Vancouver
