Beaches around Toronto


People assume you have to venture out of Toronto to find a nice beach, but that is simply not true. We've listed a few great ones below, but explore them all - they each have their own personality, attractions, sand type and people.

Woodbine / Kew / Balmy beaches
They are very close to one another, but Woodbine has beach volleyball and is fairly busy, Kew is a bit quieter and has rock sculptors on summer weekends & Balmy is the quietest of the three.

Hanlan's Point is known for its clothing optional section, but it does have a clothed area too. The sand is some of the nicest around.

Sunnyside does not meet the Blue Flag criteria some of the time, but when the water isn't safe, you can still get wet in the nearby Gus Ryder pool.

Cherry Beach is a draw for those who like to kite-board and surfboard, so while the beach isn't as nice as some others, it is a great place to be active, or watch those who are. The water is blue flag quality too.

Bluffer's Park is a very pretty beach, located at the bottom of a hill and adjacent to the Scarborough Bluffs. Its beautiful sand makes it a great place to come and cool off after a high through the nearby scenic trails.
