Beach Weather? You Bet: Toronto’s Best Lakeside Destinations!
The beginning of June marks the opening of many Toronto beaches. That’s right –now you can officially enjoy the sandy shores of Lake Ontario, have a picnic with pals, play volleyball, or simply go for a stroll. Lucky for us, there are plenty to choose from, so if you can’t find a spot to lay down your towel and cooler, there is hope of more space at another. For a list of some of the beaches that are now open, read below:
Woodbine Beach: Quite possibly the city’s most popular destination by the lake, it has plenty of room and a whole lot of volleyball nets! Even if you’re not a fan of taking a dip in the lake, you can stop by the nearby pool for a few laps.
Bluffer’s Beach Park: Truth be told, if you come by this beach you will feel like you’ve been transported to another city. The cliffs, water, and rugged scenery are all worth a drive to the East-end.
Sugar Beach: No, you can’t dip your toes in the water here but the pink umbrellas in this downtown oasis are a good enough reason to crack open a book and enjoy the scenery!
Centre Island Beach: Hop on the ferry and sail over to Centre Island. It’s a nice break from the buzz of the city and after you’re done with the beach, you can walk over to the pier and observe the calm waves of Lake Ontario.
