Situated near the Cobourg Harbour it is a comparitively smallish beach. Our visit was during the end of May but it was still chilly & there was wafts of fog running in. The water too was near to the end of the beach, therefore there was nobody on the beach, except for one hardy man on a beach-chair. It was... More

I have lived in Courtice for most of my life. 3 years ago I moved to Calgary. I am back now, but while gone I longed to go to Cobourg Beach for the day! It takes the cake for the best beach in this area. I would travel the 45 minutes any day to relax on the sand. Massive beach... More

Gorgeous sand beach beside the Cobourg Pier and Harbour. Very busy in the summer but restful and peaceful for the rest of the year. Great place to watch the birds and sail borders.

Stop here on the way through town. Good place to stretch the dog's legs...and yours. Lots of history on the main road through town close by. .

I great way to de-stress. We walked a dog. In the summer it's packed with people on the beach. Food concessions are open. There is a playground and bandshelland marina.

Neither too big nor too small, clean and well-groomed. Lots of activities, lovely boardwalk. Children's play areas adjacent, as well as a gorgeous park to relax or have a picnic. All within walking distance of stores and restaurants.

While this beautiful beach is at its best during the hot days of summer, it can provide a great experience even in the worst of weather. A recent trip there at the height of a spring storm, the rolling surf and breakers along the beachfront was very exciting and dramatic. Look for an on-shore stiff breeze and you will be... More

Clean beach, clear water, and lots of space. Our fave beach by far, with a snack bar and splash pad/playground off the boardwalk.

When the family was young I used to take my kids there and built sandcastles and enjoyed the lake. Now I tried taking my grandchildren there and it is terable. Crowded and the smell is atrocious. All the city folk come down and leave there garbage there for someone else to pick up. The young teenagers are rude and vulger... More
