“Great escape from Toronto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Great beach! Had no interest in making the trek to Wasaga on Canada Day weekend and was so thankful that we tried Cobourg Beach instead. It's great blend of beach, splashpad/playground for the kids and proximity to Toronto. Very family friendly. Was fun over the long weekend as they have a waterfront festival with concession stands, midway rides on the pier and music.

It's a great summer day trip considering it's only about an hours drive from Toronto.

“Nice beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

The town does a good job keeping the beach in nice condition unfortunately the folks who come in from out of town are VERY rude and messy. There seems to be a different event at the beach most weekends. be warned the water is cold.

“Family Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Great outdoor feeling of both peace, tranquility and at the same time bustling with friendly faces. Cobourg had their 51st Highland Games June 2014 at Victoria Park with the beach in the forefront. The boardwalk links from the beach/ park to the Marina. Boats from all over are continually docking to enjoy all that Cobourg freely offers. Great location!

“I LOVE IT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

I absolutely love this beach. I don't go for the swimming but just the atmosphere. Especially on July 1st weekend, the atmosphere is awesome. There is a fair on the pier. The beach is jam packed with travelers from near and far. There are lots of booths to buy pretty much anything you could want and fireworks to end the July 1st holiday

“Great Sandy Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Good, well-maintained clean sandy beach. Can be a bit crowded on a nice summer day. Volleyball etc. Close to shopping, restaurants etc. Shortage of changing facilities and rest-rooms
