Granville Island is not exactly an Island. However, since around 90% of it is surrounded by water - i won't complain!

Granville Island is a busy little place. There are plenty of shops, some restaurants, some bars and plenty of excellent views from every edge.

It has the most mouth watering food market - you cannot leave it without buying something! ha ha ha!

Granville Island is fairly easy to get to either by bus or taxi. It is only 5 - 10 minutes in either from the centre of Downtown - although bus would be a lot cheaper.

We had already booked ourselves on to a sightseeing tour bus, so just hopped off at Granville Island and back on when we were finished.

A nice way to spend the afternoon - and free to enter.
