Coal Harbour stretches along the waterfront from Denman to Burrard, and from the north side of Georgia to the Inlet. In this small geographical area are over 40 condominium towers, many townhouses and low-rise buildings, along with a few single-family dwellings, all interspersed with a great number and variety of businesses and services. Our marinas, beautiful parks, Seawall, and magnificent views of the harbour, North Shore, and Stanley Park are unparalleled. When looking out into our busy harbour, there is always something to watch: cruise ships, tugs and pleasure craft, floatplanes, tankers and container ships, sea buses, fire-boat, Canadian Navy vessels, athletic rowers in training. On the Seawall one can stroll and sightsee, rollerblade, bicycle, jog or run, stop at one of the many sidewalk cafes, or explore the shops.
Living in Coal Harbour
Coal Harbour is a great place to live. The neighbourhood has the vibe of a small town but directly located in Downtown Vancouver. This allows the residents to enjoy the quietness of the water and still commute to the city quickly. Coal harbour is also perfect for anyone looking for quick commute to great areas like BC Place, the Cirq Tent and Rogers Arena. You can catch a show and be back at your condo in just a couple of minutes.
Things to do in Coal Harbour
Even if you’re not visiting on business, a walk around the Vancouver Convention Centre is recommended. Along with lots of public art, the surrounding section of the seawall includes many interpretive plaques giving visitors a sense of the harbour’s history. Within the distinctive white sails of Canada Place, you can take a virtual flight over the country via the 4-D Fly Over Canada attraction. Make sure you visit Jack Poole Plaza, home of the Olympic flame from the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games!

Walk towards Stanley Park and you’ll find it hard to resist taking a seat on a park bench and watching the harbour life, complete with floatplanes landing, cyclists whizzing by, and boats bobbing past, all with a spectacular mountain backdrop. You can take to the water yourself on a harbour cruise, or board a seaplane for a “flightseeing” tour over the city.
Coal Harbour’s big attraction is the view and the laidback atmosphere. If you’re looking for something more than just a photo to take home, browse the small stores along the Seawall, most of which are locally-owned. Or after having a drink at a local waterfront pub, head to the liquor store to buy a bottle of your favourite B.C. tipple to pack in your suitcase.
