Looking for something to do this weekend? How about a beach day? Toronto has a few great beaches for you to check out before the summer is out. So, grab your beach towels, pack a picnic, and head to one of these fabulous beaches this weekend.
Bluffer’s Park Beach
Bluffer’s Park Beach is a wide, sandy beach at the foot of the Scarborough Bluffs. This beach offers lots of room for building sandcastles, games of Frisbee and volleyball. Bluffer’s Park Beach is one of eight swimming areas in Toronto that have earned a Blue Flag swimming destination, so feel free to go for a swim.
Centre Island Beach
Located on Centre Island (a short ferry ride away from Toronto’s Harbourfront), the Toronto Island Beach is an oasis away from the downtown. This family-friendly beach offers bike and boat rentals. Centre Island Beach is also Blue Flag certified, so swimming is safe.
Cherry Beach is one of the more popular beaches in Toronto, so it tends to be a bit more crowded than some of the other beaches. Cherry beach is known for its rugged landscape and is great for water sports.
Gibraltar Point Beach
Also located on the Toronto Island, Gibraltar Point Beach is one of the less crowded beaches in Toronto. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing day at the beach, Gibraltar Point Beach is a safe bet.
Hanlan’s Point Beach
Hanlan’s Point Beach is also located on the Toronto islands and is the only officially nude beach in Toronto. This beach also has one of the best views of the CNE’s annual air show, so keep that in mind when the time comes.
