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.

This beach is clean and located close to a quaint town. They have walking trails laid out on a map and also a bandshell I guess for entertainment in the summer. You have to pay for parking, and be prepared in the summer months to hunt for a spot.

Great Town and really nice people....But I cannot take my umbrella and put it on the beach anymore to protect the little ones from getting burned while taking a nap. Must be off the sand. No longer can we bring a BBQ and have hot dogs and burgers with the family.

On several visits to the beach found parking terrible. Secondly certain people from different cultures seem to think it is OK to defecate on the beach.
