water was like ice and the warning signs posted all around advise against swimming at the are we were in , however, for a very pleasant day sitting watching beach volleyball and the waves, it was ideal. Take chairs, an umbrella for the wind , and a picnic. Its not the Caribbean but its lovely .

As a public space, I can see why this place is popular in Cobourg. They host an annual Sand Castle Festival in August which is worth going to, and the rest of the summer it's a great place to socialise and I can imagine the entire Town over there. I do wish they had more add ons - some umbrellas... More

We visited the beach along with a group of our friends last Saturday. We arrived early so that we could get a nice spot to put up our tent. At the beach, parking is by the meter, but if you drive a little ahead you will find ample spots where people let out their areas for 10$ for the whole... More

We discovered the Cobourg beach 30 years ago. It is swept every morning and kept in perfect condition. There are clean washrooms, a great cantine for lunch or dinner, lots of play areas for the kids, a small water park, loads of picnic areas and so much more. Canada day weekend has the place packed with entertainment, vendors, craft tents,... More

Just had a quiet dinner in one of Cobourg's tasty eateries. A stroll along the boardwalk was quiet and pleasant as the sun sets. We are so fortunate to live in small town Ontario.

We love Cobourg Beach, and have made a habit of visiting at least once a year. It's just a short distance east of the GTA and just off the 401, so extremely convenient to get to. The beach itself is beautiful - we've found the grounds to be always clean, and never over-crowded. We went to Wasaga last year for... More

This is a beautiful beach with white sand and shallow water for the little ones. There is a nice park behind it as well and it is close to downtown. Be warned that it has been discovered and if you go on the weekend in July or August it will be packed. It's much nicer if you can go during... More

It is a wonderful and peaceful place to visit and stroll along either the boardwalk or the beach. Cobourg has upgrade extensively the whole Waterfront from the Marina to the beach. There lots of festivals and activities to do and see while there. The new play area with mini water park for the kids is always filled with kids enjoying... More

The Northumberland Players have produced another huge hit with All The King’s Women. This extremely talented, enthusiastic, creative group of players have once again struck a high note with this production. The quaint and pretty little town of Cobourg (barely 100 kms. down the 401 west of Toronto) is indeed blessed with an abundance of talented performers, producers and crew.... More

Stopped by for some lunch with family & took some time to see the rest on the town. The beach was very clean & the boardwalk was interesting. Nice place to spend an hour or two.
