    We went at end of August to Crystal Beach. It was crowded as always but managed to park free much further from the entrance. The entrance fee is still$10/person which used to be free a few years ago. It went to $5/person and now it is $10/person.
    You can find several small restaurants if you don't want to haul your cooler with you in the send. They give you a bracelet so you can come back.
    A shore is very rocky with sharp small rocks but if you enter the water where the rubber path ends you can walk in without any trouble; no rocks.
    The worst is that you can't take any sun tent onto the beach, only umbrellas, which will get blown away if the wind is strong and hit other beachgoers. There is no shade on the beach.
    There is an area where you can shower to wash off all the sand at the washroom area which is very useful.
    Pros: Lots of sun, lots of sand, warm water temperature
    Cons: Crowded, no shade, no sun-tent allowed-only umbrellas, expensive for a small beach (300 m sandy shoreline)

    If you are in the Niagara Falls /Crystal Beach area I highly recommend checking Last Chance Horse and Pony Rescue. The people that run it were amazing and take such good care of the animals, she was able to tell me each ones story and how she rescued them. Heart warming!

    Decided on a bike ride today to see the South Coast of Canada!! Otherwise known as the North Shore of Lake Erie and Sand and Cycles fit the bill.

    Service was well thought through, with helpful routes, maps; bicycle was outfitted with basket, water bottle holder, phone holder, lock, helment, everything you need.

    Reasonable price. Very friendly young entrepeneur at the helm, with great energy and attention to detail - very nice to see!

    Will return and head to see the east side from Cystal Beach. Thank you Andrea!!

    The lure of Crystal Beach of yore is kept alive at this must see store. It's unfortunate that the Park died but the memory lives on at this unique place... even if you just stroll through and see some commemorative items.. sure brings back memories. I applaud the owners for their stamina in keeping it open. If there's one suggestion, it is to bring in more CB stuff, books, videos... anything. It's an awesome place! If you remember the Park, you will not be disappointed.

    I had a great first lesson withTammy. She's an amazing instructor, made me feel comfortable, and taught me a lot in a short time. I highly recommend Pop Up Paddle!
