This beach was a hidden gem for awhile but the weekends are now really crowded. You need to get to Coboug before 9am to get a good spot on the beach and a good parking spot.

One of the finest beaches in southern Ontario. Very wide pure sand beach that is protected by the long break wall on the west. Excellent for swimming in the clear waters of Lake Ontario.

The long expanse of beautiful white sand is always well populated in the summer! It reminds me of a beach in Florida. What a vibrant community.

Gorgeous beach with all the bells and whistles. Parking a bit of a challenge be prepared to walk. Busy, busy busy. I prefer a quieter rustic beach but it's obvious that many people love the beach.

This is one of the best beaches from Kingston to Toronto. Cobourg's best kept secret for a long time until the word got out. Weekends the beach is usually invaded by people from the Toronto area.

Love going to the Cobourg beach. Sun sand and can't miss the ice cream shop near the beach. Love to walk in the sand. Love to see the sand castles on the August long weekend event. Were very creative this year. Keep up the good work.

The Cobourg beach is a gem! Lots for adults and kids too including a splash pad and playground. There is so much sand and it is kept very clean. Don't miss the annual sandcastle festival which is quite magical. Cobourg has a beach boardwalk that is perfect fir a short nest walk. The best part...it is accessible!

Even though it was October, this is a great place for a walk. We spent time here even in the cool weather. I can imagine it as a great place in the summer.
