Best beaches in Toronto – yes, we have beaches!

Rooftop bars, fancy cars and the sweet hum of the ice cream truck – sure signs that summer has officially arrived in Toronto. Without a doubt, we have some of the best pools, patios, and parks, but we also have awesome beaches! Whether you're craving a dip in the refreshing lake or just want to soak up some sunshine, Toronto beaches cater to everyone. Getting such vastly different landscapes within kilometers is what makes Toronto living so desirable to so many. Here are just a few of our favs that we hope make it onto your summer bucket lists:
