Beach Sancturary

 

SPECTACULAR WHITE SAND, BLUE WATER – A LITTLE SLICE OF PARADISE, CLOSE TO HOME, IS EASY TO FIND

Right on Lake Ontario, this beach is expansive, with soft white sand reaching forever, blue water shimmering in the sunlight, great for swimming and gazing at the horizon line. This is a beach for dreaming. No flight necessary to exotic locales.

There is plenty of room for stretching out. Bring your lounge chairs, umbrellas, water toys for the kids and a good book. Lifeguards are on duty daily, unless posted, overseeing the action. The beach has a snack bar, if you need a french fry or burger fix. There’s a splash pad for kids and play structures for toddlers and the school-age set. You can definitely spend the day in full beach mode – just float those worries away. Relaxation here is simple.

Take a leisurely stroll along the beach boardwalk, designed with benches for resting or an ice cream break, and streetlamps for an evening walk. For more shade and greenery, you can picnic under the trees at Victoria Park near the beach entrance and enjoy the flower gardens.

There’s an old-fashioned bandshell here, too, for open-air entertainment. Check the listings for theatre, movies or music by the Concert Band of Cobourg. Bring your lawn chairs and sit down for a treat. The location is all-inclusive. Within a short walk of the beach and Victoria Park, you can visit the lively, pedestrian-friendly main street and heritage downtown. Shopping, dining, amusements, accommodations – it’s all right at hand.
