About Seawall In Vancouver, Vancouver
The Vancouver Seawall was created to prevent the sea from encroaching on to the cliffs that surround Stanley Park in Vancouver. It is indeed a unique attraction. Although the purpose of the pathway created was completely different, the wall pathway has become a meeting point and tourist attraction like no other.
The views from the path are simply stunning. The mighty mountains on one side and the lovely green water on the other; what could possibly be better? The place is very popular with pedestrians and cyclists (although the two don’t necessarily get along) in the evenings. And while it is very popular with the locals, tourists will love this place too.
There is a rollerblading area nearby as well and you can sit on the steps or even fish in the area. If you are going to Stanley Park, then the Seawall is a definite must visit that is worth your while.
A part of the Stanley Park, the Seawall in Vancouver is a pedestrian stone wall constructed with a pathway used to ride bicycles. The view of the Biurrard Inlet from here is refreshing with the Royal Yatch club and the Deaman’s Island seen at a distance. If you are visiting during afternoons, carry a picnic basket with you to make the most of the place while a ferry or an Aqua-bus ride along the seawall is perfect if you don’t want to walk the extensive 22 kilometres.
The nearby Kitsilano Beach is a local favorite during summers while the wildlife, greenery and the gorgeous view all along the seawall, is where the charm lies.

My family is visiting Vancouver so we decided to walk along the seawall and check it out. As a pedestrian, I wasn't too impressed. Maybe it looks better when the tide is in, or when it's not too hazy from the smokey wild fires and you can see a clear blue sky or the Vancouver skyline. We walked about 3 miles and didn't see much other than a lot of bike riders. So, the seawall might be great for bikes but not so much for walkers.
Amazing views and awesome bike path. My wife and I loved it. Had a hard time not taking a bunch of pics.
It is one of my favorite walks (long walks) in Vancouver. The sea wall its all border of Stanley Park, and if you take the time to walk it you will see beautiful highlights, take a break and do picnic during your way and relax. If you walk the sea wall you shoyld keep your eyes open! Because you will be surrounded by beautiful wild life such as Harbour Seals, Royal Eagles and if is your lucky day maybe a whale that is chilling around (it happens one or 2 times per year). So enjoy the sea wall!!!!
Great place to walk, run or bike. The view is beautiful. Great spot for photographers.
Such a beautiful path, i'd love to walk it daily. I didn't want to leave. Everyone needs to come walk the path! Remember that there are two lanes, one for walking and the other for biking. Biking is one way and walking may be the same? So be aware of the bicyclists, they will ding their bells all day at you for walking in their path lmao
