Well worth the trip out just to wander the beaches and the residential streets. Friendly locals and nice shops are just the icing on the cake.

The Beaches area of Toronto is a great area with, yes, a beach, many restaurants, a boardwalk and things happening all the time. Don't miss this place. You'll have a good time.

Had a recommendation to see this from a local. Took a multitude of transit to get there. So disappointing. Only two places to dine....greek and pizza. Maybe we never made it to the right place. It was hard to tell since nothing was marked.

Not quite so much a beachy feel - more like a building site with sand feel! It lacked the tranquillity of an actual beach but it was still pretty nice - just ignore the hum of the nearby factories!

I had a nice relaxing stroll along the boardwalk with a friend. A beach always tends to be a pleasant visit and this is no exception. It's quite clean and cared for with some nice beach houses. But as beaches go, I didn't find it so special and didn't fancy a paddle. It's cool for being in Toronto and not... More

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
