Cobourg beach is an amazing spot for all ages. The long sandy beach will keep children playing for hours, then cooling off in the water. Lake Ontario is always cold but invigorating in the heat of summer. There is a splash/wading pool for children and a change room. Playground equipment is state of the art and appeals to children of... More

So many people on the weekends. This use to be such a quiet beach when I was younger. It gained in popularity as time went on and the waterfront was made to be so amazing. The July first weekend is so popular, people travel over from the States to come to our waterfront festival! Bring lots of money with you... More

The Cobourg Beach gets very busy in the summertime, but considering it's not far from the city, it's a great escape.

Been here many times. Great place to walk dogs and for bird watching especially in the winter. Every aug they have a sandcastle completion which is very nice. The beach in summer is great for summer. The only drawback you now have to pay for parking except in winter. Washrooms are nice and clean but are closed in winter

I visited Victoria Park by Cobourg Beach in November and the display of lights was both charming and enjoyable. It is the perfect size for a small Canadian town, it is lovely to walk through, and it was able to get us in the holiday spirit. It is definitely worth it to visit after the sun sets with friends and... More

An extremely well-maintained beach is the major draw. It is groomed daily, with good sand (not rocky). There are covered picnic areas as well as two sets of playground equipment (climbers, etc.), swings, a concession stand, washrooms and a splash pad in the adjoining Victoria Park. There is also a small camper/trailer park at the west end of the beach.... More

Loved my day out here and later the fireworks. Beach is nice, long and clean. RV parking facility is available and there are plenty of shops at a walking distance from the beach. It also features changing rooms and kids playing area with shower and small fountains.
