Psst … Toronto has Beaches!

Toronto may not have the beachfront of Vancouver, but we’ve got plenty of boardwalks and sandy beaches, for kids to dig and build and play.

Ward’s Island beach

Located on quiet Ward’s Island this beach is a perfect getaway in the summertime. Family friendly, with clean changerooms located closeby.
Ferries to Ward’s Island depart from Ferrydocks at 9 Queens Quay West, Toronto

Woodbine Beach

Stroll along the 3 km long boardwalk, spend some time playing in the playgrounds or take a dip in the water. Woodbine Beach buzzes with activity in the summertime.

Cherry Beach

Located at the foot of Cherry Street, this beach is a charming spot where families can canoe, build sandcastles and take the dog for a run at the fenced off-leash area.

In my "previous life" I was a mental health my current life I'm a stay-at-home mom with 2 beautifully adventurous kids. I share everything that lands on my kitchen counter over on my blog, Kitchen Counter Chronicles. Swing by and learn how we are greening their lives; what we are crafting; what we are cooking and what we are reading. While you will often find the girls and I inside the kitchen, you will also find us out and about getting our hands dirty, exploring and learning outdoors.
