“Early morning is the best time....”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Our Cobourg beach is MAGNIFICENT and CLEAN with many seating areas for contemplation. Come EARLY MORNING with coffee or tea in hand, find a quiet spot with a view and just be...you will feel uplifted and calm, no matter what your worries are!!! That, dear reader, is the powerful healing effect of the beach and the sound of the waves (early morning). Now once you're done with warm beverage...make a pit stop at the nearest washroom, then walk the boardwalk and I mean all the way to the end pass the marina, going west as it gets quieter...Make your stroll a CONTEMPLATIVE walk as it will do your mind and body good since you'll breathe deeper and feel energized for the rest of the day...AS LONG AS YOU DON'T rush...experience the environment mindfully...take time to sit here and there...stop by the ecological garden and sit there in silence...silence is golden to pacify your uncomfortable mind...and just OBSERVE how simple and effortless Nature is....a reminder to simplify and be humble and do one thing at a TIME...SO... when you walk just walk...when you listen just listen...when you speak....speak from the heart! That is the TAO of this sacred sanctuary of Cobourg...and worth experiencing for your "self". Enjoy with all your senses on your next visit!

“Awesome Spot!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This beach was one of the reasons I moved to Cobourg. A perfect spot for everything from romance to a family spot. Very clean, they rake the beach daily. Splash park for the kids in the summer, and 2 nice play grounds. It can be crowded on the weekends. Parking is kinda pricy all year round though, $2 hour, no maximum! My family visits at least once a week - year round!

“Best Beach on Lake Ontario”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Without doubt Cobourg Beach is one of the best beaches on Lake Ontario. It is beautifully kept, always clean, lots for everyone to do - and as an added bonus the Lake is clean and clear and wonderful for swimming - although always a bit on the cold side.
