This is one of those beaches that’s perfect for toddlers because it is in a bay so the waves are mild and a sandbar makes for nice wading areas and hermit crab collecting. The tide completely covers the beach though so be aware.

In early August Ferry Beach is a good spot to look for residents and migrants. We saw a fuzzy little young of the year piping plover, half a dozen ruddy turnstones, least and semi-palmated sandpipers.

This beach stands out from some of the others because it has coves and a bird sanctuary. Love coming here and getting away from the crowded other beaches.

The day fee in 2018 is $15. If you live in Scarborough it is well worth the additional cost to buy a beach pass or if you are 60+ and a resident of Scarborough it is free.
