Visited Cobourg Beach with family on a Sunday. Pretty close to GTA (Scarborough area). Clean beach, family friendly, accessible washrooms, great splash pad, nice cafeteria for food if you did not bring food with you, friendly locals, nice town for ice cream. Overall, a great experience. Much better than just staying at Woodbine beach.

Amazing sandy beach. Gets busy, but beach space seems to handle it, so it never really feels over crowded. Just like thoughout cobourg, nice flowers every where. Great family friendly place to bring your kids.

It is conveniently located off 401. Big sandy beach with downtown area just north of it, just two blocks away. Well kept gardens, lot of volleyball on the beach. Good eating places around. Bike friendly town

I spent years growing up going to Cobourg Beach in the summer, and this spring I moved to Cobourg with my family. The beach just keeps getting better, the parks and splash pad are great for the kids, and there are always fun events going on like competitive beach volleyball, the waterfront festival, movies and concerts, etc. Highly recommend visiting...

I love this beach. It's clean, the water is clean, the locals are extremely friendly. There is free parking on the street, it's not busy at all on weekdays, there is a splash pad/water park for the kids, a playground, a great area for a picnic. It's worth the 1 hour drive from Toronto.

I am from the East Coast and i love this beach. I beach is well maintained. It is typically quite busy so finding an ideal spot sometimes is difficult but the water is lovely. Occasionally there is a smell that is from the sand being moved however it isn't anything too aweful. If you don't mind crowds then this isn't... More

While we have always enjoyed Cobourg beach, we are starting to realize that it is a 50/50 risk that it may smell along the shore because the shoreline has not been cleaned up. Thankfully the walk to downtown for shopping is not far so we can take off and do that if the smell is too unbearable. Please, especially on... More

Very well groomed beach with lots of activities. Beautiful views! Very close to the marina. Grass picnic area and a splash pad for the little ones as well as a playground. Steps to Cobourg's main street and shopping as well as a wonderful ice cream parlour. Great place to spend a day!
