August long weekend brings out the artistry along this beach. Sand sculptures of all ages gather, from the kids with a bucket and shovel to the accomplished artists from all over North America. It's a beautiful beach and this is the weekend to go and enjoy the art, fun and sun. Don't forget your sunscreen and enjoy the beach!

After reading Trip Advisor reviews we decided to stop in at Cobourg Beach to enjoy a few hours in the sun. This was a break from our roadtrip and boy are we happy we did! The parking is directly beside the main beach with clean washrooms and change rooms. The beach is beautifully groomed and has super soft sand! The... More

Spent a couple hours getting burnt while at the beach. A nice place to take the family and enjoy. Be sure to take sunscreen or umbrella. Long walk to bathrooms.

Nearby places better to eat than the overpriced concession stand. Washrooms are clean. Plenty of spots for a picnic. Grocery stores a short drive. Fast food restaurants close too.

Cobourg Beach is a beautiful place for a day at the lake. Splash pad for the kids and a park for the little ones who don't wish to swim. The white sands are litter free and the lake itself is crystal clear and inviting.

We all need it thats who. I've travelled the Carib and Mexico and this beach is right up there is quality (subject to the fact that we are in Canada of course). The beach is really part of a triumvirate - Beach, Park (including Trailer Park), Marina. You can see folks walking the board walk, through this triumvirate on the... More

we spent a weekend along this beach and it was a family place to travel.. Many children and people of varied back grounds. A trailer park abuts the beach.There are several walk ways. Board walks for people. Beach looked a little dirty due to the large number of people. water was cold when we visited.

First time at this beach with two young kids. Super hot day, the beach was very clean and the sand was amazing BUT the water was so cold!! It was like stepping in the Pacific near SF, so we did not spend too much time in the water despite the hot day. Every time someone entered the water you could... More

Wow - great beach on Lake Ontario. Clean, busy and with a lifeguard on site. It was a hot day - perfect for sitting on the beach and getting breezed!
