Known as "The Beach" or "The Beaches," this eastern side of Toronto is a popular tourist spot as it offers a completely different flavor than downtown brings. There are plenty of historic buildings and independent specialty shops, but the main selling point is several kilometers of boardwalk surrounded by a sandy beach.

The eastern beach in Toronto has a great long board for walking, running, or biking. Great for a family or couples walk; combine with a stroll back along Queen St. East.

Creative and inspiration! Worthy to take about two hours to have a leisure walk on the boardwalk. Good for whole family activity. Kids can bring their bikes and roller coasters too.

The last weekend was a great weekend to walk the boardwalk. Wide wooden walk, stretching for miles towards down town with bike paths close by. Many chairs owned by the city to sit on anchored in the sand. The sand itself not the greatest but...More

The Beaches is a wonderful area of Toronto. Beautiful beach on Lake Ontario with a lengthy boardwalk perfect for a long walk. There is also a bike/jogging path alongside the boardwalk. So whatever your choice of exercise, there is a path with beautiful lakeside vistas....More

If you can look past the garbage, the dog poop and the large number of off leash dogs it's a nice change of pace when visiting Toronto. If the City or the locals did a little more to maintain it I would definitely give it...More

The Toronto Beaches east of Woodbine are a popular attraction year round but especially in the heat of summer. Swimming and boating, but there is also a good long boardwalk for those who don't like struggling through the sand and gravel. You can also walk...More

Toronto Beach is a great getaway from the downtown city rush. It is particularly convenient because it is accessible from the Queen Streetcar. You certainly do not expect to find such a large, clean beach with beautiful blue water & clean sand so near a...More

Very cool beach in a very cool location. We did not swim while we visited, but enjoyed this area a lot. Crazy to be so close to the city because it doesn't feel like you are at all when you visit this beach!

I'm thinking of planning a trip to Toronto with my family, and the so called ''beach'' was something I was going to consider to do. Is the water clean? Are there just fish in there? How's the sand? Is it really crowded if I go in July? Thanks:)
