The Beaches are a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city without having to go too far.
We took the streetcar from downtown, which allowed us to see the shops and restaurants along Queen St East leading to The Beaches. I have to say though, the journey was pretty long! About 30-40 min on the streetcar. I recommend taking and then taking a bus down to the neighbourhood.
The actual beach itself isn't the most picturesque in the world, but good for settling down with a book and some snacks or lunch. Many people walking their dogs and there is an area where dogs can run around. The water looked dirty with algae to me, so I wouldnt go swimming there.
I suggest to do this attraction only if you have a free day to relax and read by the beach. There isn;t anything else to do here.
