We were staying in Tobermory and took a day trip to Lion's Head. Best beach around! The kids loved the platform to jump/dive off. Lots of families. Kids made new friends and did not want to leave! Clean and very nice water.

A nice little beach with shady trees and soft sand. It was quiet with families with small children, and couples just wanting to relax. Lovely view of the marina. Water is cold, but I'm a bit of a baby!

Small beach located not far my the heart of town so you can walk there if busy. Campgrounds are located next to this beach and from the beach you can watch the boats coming and going.
