Lovely beach for a stroll

Bear in mind this is a clothing-optional beach, so it's only good for a stroll if you don't mind sharing it with people who are letting it all hang out ;)

This end of the island is far away from anything - any this is the best thing. The airport is close but does not disturb you at the beach. One word of warning though: It is partly clothes optional.

We went for a walk around the island & it's really nice. Nothing extravagant, but its calm & clean. It has the famous lighthouse on the island too & you great great views of the skyline. it is kind of noisy with the airport right there but nothing too disturbing like Pearson.

Hanlan's point in general is a great section of the island. It has tennis courts and picnic grounds, but the beach... well, it's suppose to be a clothing optional beach. The term is used because it's a public beach and thus, the city can't say "nude" is mandatory. Given this and it's easy access, it unfortunately sees too many people... More

I LOVE Hanlan's Point so much I started my business renting beach chairs and umbrella's 13 years ago. I love my office :-) I love the eclectic mixture of people and the fact people who go there are generally happy...as it's the one place they WANT to be..away from the worries and complexities of life. I love the fact people... More

quite dirty, what a difference after the central island; turns out most visitors are those "pride" people whose bihaviour we found unacceptable do not go there unless you belong to that "proud" community

I am only basing this on weekend visits. I've heard it is quieter here on weekdays. There are not a lot of choices if you want spend a day at a beach that you can take a subway to, so I've been here a few times with friends. The park is nice, with a food stand where you can get... More

I ordered an umbrella for my girlfriends and I around 1:30 when we first arrived at the gorgeous nude beach. The 2 young guys took our order, but then completely denied us service. They ignored us, gave us the "runaround" so to speak, kept saying there were still people in front of us, we were frustrated but being patient since... More

This beach is a little walk from the ferry drop off. The swimming is mediocre: the sand in the water is pebbly and the water is not crystal clear. The people are friendly and mostly nude. They are respectful and relaxed. There is nothing skeevy or disquieting about their nakedness and after a time even non experienced nudists may feel... More

This had been my first time at this beach. When in Rome, do as the Romans do and all that so of course I "opted" out of my clothes like 90% of the people there that day. This was a great beach to visit, it was packed yet very quiet and respectful. No football tossing jocks strutting their prowess, no... More
