Despite the fact that Coal Harbour is right downtown, it’s a surprisingly calm little neighbourhood, right on the water’s edge. The area starts at Canada Place and stretches east over Jack Pool Plaza all the way to Stanley Park. It is bordered by the Burrard Inlet to the north, West Georgia Street to the south, and the Financial District to the east. Coal Harbour and the marinaside is a charming mix of business and residential, being home to both the Vancouver Convention Centre as well as condo towers.
Very close to this area you’ll find the seawall, cozy neighbourhood cafes with cutting edge restaurants and a popular marinaside, where even sealife can be spotted with a bit of luck.
