Known as "The Beach" or "The Beaches," this eastern side of Toronto is a popular tourist spot as it offers a completely different flavor than downtown brings. 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.

For me the beach area wasn't that inviting. It has some nice walkways to get a god walk in along the water but it is kind of run down. The beaches were ok but not totally inviting.

The trip to Toronto beach by boat is nice. You also have a nice view from the island of the CN Tower and downtown Toronto. The entire island is a pretty walk with plenty to do for the kids. The beach itself says that it is bathing suit optional, so although secluded it is not a place for the family.... More

It's huge beach. For many people. Where you can spend your free time in summer playing volleyball and having fun in the water. I recommend it for people who like to spend time on the beach swimming and having sun bath.

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.
