“Beach and Tower are Both Free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

In the Old Port area, this is a small strip of land with clean sand, some provided umbrellas and a bar with offerings. You can sit on the steps or just hang out for no charge. Electric scooters are available nearby to rent. It is for sunbathing only since you aren't allowed to swim in the river. Their website has a PDF of rules and hours. There's a larger Pavilion nearby with more food and drink options, but no sand. The Clock Tower itself is worth a climb (also free). Only 190 steps, and it does become narrower as you get to the top. View from the top is pretty good!

“Perfect after rapids trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We hung out here for about 3 hours after the rapids trip, Saute Moutons. There was a bar with food and drink - great mojitos and lobster rolls. It's free of charge, with bathrooms and changing stations. It's a man made beach with great sand. I'd go there again, especially on a beautiful day like we had!

“Clock Tower Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Fine sand, mist stations, blue parasols neighbouring the Montreal Yacht Club. Where history meets leisure during the summer time. Look up opening hours on the city's website before heading out there: http://www.oldportofmontreal.com/clock-tower-beach.html
