There are plenty of historic buildings and independent specialty shops, but the main selling point is several kilometers of boardwalk surrounded by a sandy beach. « less

The Toronto Beaches located near Queen street East of Woodbine. The area just has a nice feeling. Very casual, eclectic feeling. Funky shops and great restaurants on Queen. The beach is Sandy and has a boardwalk. Nice place to spend an afternoon for both young and old.

When driving in this part of Toronto from time to time, I always like to drop by this beach. That is, park in my car & people watch plus enjoy the sites. No matter the time of year that is there is always something to see or going on here. It can be very quiet than another minute you wonder... More

As a former long-time resident of Toronto, the Beach(es) was one of my favourite destinations during the warm weather - as well as Christmas Day. A great 'trip" is to take the Queen streetcar (Neville Loop) from downtown and go almost to the end of the line (check with the operator about where to get off). Then walk any of... More

We enjoyed some time at Cherry Beach but it was not ideal for swimming. We much preferred driving a little further east to the beaches for swimming, lounging on beach, beach volleyball and people watching. Our preference is to head to the Island but we do not always have the time to take the ferry over.

If you want to just chill, relax and walk your dog........... It has a beautiful boardwalk and considerably well maintained and clean considering it can get crowded.

Good place to take family and friends when it is hot and humid. Great views, well kept. Parking could be better but you can find it if you look hard enough.

This is down the street from my work so I get to head down to the beach on lunch break. Living in and around Toronto most of my life I was shocked that I didn't know this existed until 2 summers ago. I've moved to the area now and am also within walking distance. It gets crowded by the water,... More

Glass can sometimes be found in the sand. Sand, if you can call it that is not the typical beach quality sand; it is rough and clunky. There is lose gravel bits here and there. The boardwalk is in need of major repair. There are rotted segments and sometime there are loose nails sticking up. Some days the flies are... More

If you can't get out of town, this is second best to going up north. The beach is beautful, the boardwak is long and you can ride, run, walk, enjoy. A great place to have a picnic and get away from the hustle and bustle of city streets. Later go up to Queen street and have dinner in one of... More

Volleyball, frequented by dog walkers and joggers. Boardwalk to walk - watch out for all the baby strollers. Hard to get parking by late morning. You can also park by the theatre and walk over.
