This white sandy beach of Lake Erie is one of the most popular beaches just outside of Toronto. If you're looking for a quiet and peaceful day in the sun, you should probably avoid this spot because it's more of a lively, party beach!

If you haven't yet been to the Scarborough Bluffs you'll be surprised to know that there's actually multiple beaches there! The water is so turquoise blue you'll feel like you were somehow transported to the shores of the Caribbean!

If you head just outside the city you'll find a beautiful conservation area that's the perfect place to spend a sunny day outdoors. Kelso Lake is actually a human-made reservoir with a sandy beach that's perfect for a day of lounging and water sports.

Cobourg is a fairly popular place to visit among locals, especially on the weekends, but that doesn’t detract from its chilled vibes and gorgeous water. The best months to visit are July and August because of the weather, but if you’re up for a bracing dip you can certainly visit outside of the peak summer months.

Cherry Beach

Cherry Beach, Ontario
Rate

A popular spot for kite-boarding and surfboarding, Cherry Beach has a decidedly laid back atmosphere. The smell of charcoal barbecues often wafts over the beach from the small wooded area to the north. At night, the parking lot serves as one of the city's best-loved makeout areas.

This is definitely one of the most underrated beaches in the city. If you're looking to avoid the crowds at the popular Toronto beaches this summer, this is a great alternative. It's a pretty short stretch of sand but it's the perfect distance from the rest of the city so it's perfect for a quiet day!

Just a stone’s throw away from Woodbine Beach is Kew-Balmy Beach and it’s much more secluded and private than it’s more famous neighbor. In addition to being quiet, it’s also closer to the water with areas that are perfect for lounging.

This small sandy beach has gorgeous views of the Niagara Escarpment and even has a farmer’s market on Saturday mornings. If you can, we’d suggest checking out the nearby Tobermory Grotto as well – its turquoise waters are mind-blowingly gorgeous.

A relatively small slice of alpine paradise tucked away behind West Island’s housing developments and therefore having the feel of hidden gem. Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park features the largest beach nearby to Montreal and visitors have endless choices when it comes to what activities to do there. From windsurfing to beach volleyball to kayaking, it’s impossible to get bored here and the scenery is pretty enough to simply sit back and take it all in.

Located about an hour outside of the city centre, Saint-Zotique Beach is a great spot to waste away a sunny summer afternoon. With over five kilometres of waterfront and a healthy handful of available on-site activities (think: pedal boats, barbecue stations and tennis courts) there’s something for every kind of beach-goer.

Pointe-Calumet Beach has become synonymous with Beach Club, the rowdy adult-only outdoor club, but the beach is actually divided into two sections: One for those who are down for day drinking and dancing, while the other is for families and those looking for a more laid-back day in the sun. If you’re going for the Top Gun-esque volleyball experience during your next day at the beach, this is the spot.

A little less than half an hour outside of the city centre, RécréoParc Beach boasts natural sand, supervised swimming and lake-like water. While folks tend to flock here in the summer for an urban camping experience, there’s also an indoor restaurant on the premises for those who need a break from the sand and sun, or at least to grab a drink before heading back out into it.

While not exactly the sandy locale you might expect, these waterfalls an hour north of the city supply a secluded spot by Lac Masson for dipping in the frothy water of its naturally formed pools. It’s rocky but has all the trappings of a relaxing beach. While it’s open to all to bring picnics and parties, it’s also a popular dating and hookup spot, so be respectful if you plan on visiting—or suggest a trip there on Grindr.
