“Can get a little crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

so you can head to the west beach past the marina.

Clean and big beach, close to downtown food. Parking can be a bit of a challenge but it is worth a small walk if necessary.

“Dirty visitors on our beautiful beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

I live in Cobourg and use the beach for my daily walks year long. Come the long weekend in May it is full of visitors. Most of them are clean and use the beach, clean up and go home. However, there are folk out there that do not pick up their plastic bottles & grocery bags and who use parts of the beach as a toilet! We know what you are doing when you erect those little tents. Thank goodness Cobourg council has banned the tents from now on. Also, cooking oil gets thrown on the beach after the BBQ's. This is not a wasteland people, this is a beautiful part of Cobourg that requires high property taxes to maintain. I am in support of an entrance fee to visitors. Show your ID, if it does not have a Cobourg address, or you are not one of our friendly trailer visitors, then pay up!
