A huge sandy beach with clear water that you can walk out for more than 200 feet and not get up to your neck. Great place to lay in the sun, read a book, or take your chair in the water and relax. Highly recommend this followed by an ice cream at the parlour by the beach.

Beautiful, clean and white sandy beach. The water gets nice and warm in the mid summer as the beach is enclosed in a small bay. Weekends are totally crazy and overrun with visitors who have heard about this sandy gem on Lake Ontario. Very safe - you can walk out forever before the water gets deep. Great for kids.

The kids always enjoy jumping in the waves at Victoria Park/Cobourg Beach. Downside is $8 pay and display parking during the week days. Sand is soft, water clean and clear with a good temperature for swimming. There are playgrounds and a splash pad we have used in the past as well as a snack bar. August long weekend boasts a...

I live in Whitby with my husband and have been waiting for the right time to visit Cobourg beach. We finally visited on Sun Aug 9th 2015 with my niece (4) and nephew (7) from out of town along with 6 other adults. My only complaint is that we didn't come sooner. The lake water is clean and clear -... More

Went for day, to see the Sandcastles. Was excellent weather, very nice beach! Parking is pricey ($2 per hr., same as Downtown Toronto, for crying out loud?)

Beach was very nice and clean, didn't see too many swimming like other beaches in Onttario. But worth a stroll... Nice boardwalk next to the baach as well..
