The Beach, or “Beaches” as known by many locals, is located to the East of Toronto’s downtown, from Coxwell east to Victoria Park. This area has two main attractions; the beaches in which the area is known for, and the eclectic mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and activities hosted by Queen St. The Beach itself is a single uninterrupted stretch of sandy shoreline divided into four sections; Woodbine Beach to the west, Kew Beach, Scarboro Beach in the centre, and Balmy Beach to the east. A 3km boardwalk runs along most of its length with a portion of the Martin Goodman Trail bike path running parallel. Undiscovered by tourists, this charming neighborhood is reflective of its diversity and easy-going attitude with its quaint and quirky stores, a collection of bars and restaurants frequented for their great atmosphere, and an active and healthy lifestyle. The inviting Lake Ontario beachfront features acres of soft sand, shady parks that are ideal for a picnic or working up a sweat on the bike and rollerblade paths and or one of the many beach volleyball courts. An ideal neighborhood for those who enjoy the outdoors lifestyle and a small town feel for their family with good local public schools. Public transportation comes by way of buses and streetcars in this neighborhood, with easy access.
