Getting to know the best beaches in Canada

Getting to know the best beaches in Canada

From coast to coast, Canada boasts wonderful beaches, some of which may be enjoyed even in the dead of winter. Discover ocean beaches with massive surf, tranquil interior lakes with warm water, crowded beach towns, large expanses of sand along the Great Lakes' coasts, and magnificent flat stretches on the East Coast.
Because of the scorching summers in central Canada, local beaches in locations like Ontario and lakes in Manitoba are frequently filled with beachgoers wanting to cool off. Soft-sand beaches along the lakes in British Columbia's interior are popular summer getaways, and you can surf and enjoy the beaches year-round on the Pacific Coast. 

Tofino and Long Beach, British Columbia

On Vancouver Island, the vacation town of Tofino has beautiful beaches. Long Beach in Pacific Rim National Park is the most well-known and, possibly, the most magnificent. This vast beach, well titled, runs about 16 kilometers and bears the brunt of the Pacific Ocean's unceasing attack on dry ground.

The water is chilly here, warming only from 8 degrees Celsius in the dead of winter to 12 degrees Celsius at the height of summer. However, a cast of characters dons their half-inch full-body wetsuits and surfboards to take on the never-ending waves.

Surfing is huge in Tofino, and it's a terrific location to learn. 

Manitoba's Grand Beach Provincial Park

Grand Beach is consistently regarded as one of Canada's best beaches, because to its massive sand dunes, mild shallow water, and fun environment. This beach is only about an hour's drive from Winnipeg and, as a result, attracts hordes of people every bright summer weekend.

The beach spans for three kilometers in a beautiful arc on one of the nicest lakes in the province, Lake Winnipeg. A wooden boardwalk extends down the rear of the beach, and concession kiosks providing hot food, cold beverages, and popcorn may be found here. The beach's silky, golden-brown sand is great for building sandcastles.

Parlee Beach, New Brunswick

Parlee Beach Provincial Park proudly boasts to have Canada's hottest saltwater beach. The coastal village of Pointe-du-Chene is about 20 minutes from downtown Moncton. During the prized warm summer days of July and August, the beige beaches stretch for one kilometer and are busy with residents and visitors.

The shallow water continues into the ocean, and as the tide recedes, the beach expands, leaving warm pools that are ideal for children. Throughout the summer, lifeguards monitor the beach. Many families visit Parlee Beach throughout the summer and stay for a week or more at the gorgeous campsite. 

Penticton, BC, Okanagan Beach and Skaha Beach

Okanagan Beach has long been known as the region's most popular beach, attracting families for years. The beach at Penticton stretches in a long, wide loop around the southern edge of Lake Okanagan.

In the summer, the lake water heats up beautifully, and the soft sand and shallow entry into the water make it a fantastic area for tiny children to splash around. The massive floating Wibit Water Park is located just offshore from the beach. The Loco Landing Adventure Park, a short walk from the beach, has go-karts, rope courses, and rock climbing, among other entertaining activities.

Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver, British Columbia

Kitsilano Beach, one of Vancouver's most famous, features everything for a beautiful afternoon and is a popular summer destination in Vancouver. Grab a log, lie back, and take in the scenery of the North Shore Mountains. Kit's Beach, as it is called locally, is a vast arc of sand that fronts English Bay. Behind the beach, a seawall extends all the way to Stanley Park.

The water is frigid, although in the shallows it warms up significantly. A swimming platform is tethered offshore for the most daring. Not a fan of cold seawater? A more polished alternative is to swim in the Kitsilano Pool, a massive 137-meter heated saltwater pool directly on the ocean's edge.

Wasaga Beach, Ontario

Wasaga Beach, one of Ontario's popular beach communities, attracts almost two million sun and surf enthusiasts from throughout the province. This is a destination to see and be seen. A regular stream of tanned individuals walks along the water's edge, taking selfies and having a nice time. Countless families and their children have returned from the performance, swimming in the shallow, warm waves.

Wasaga Beach, located on Georgian Bay, is considered to be the world's longest freshwater beach, thus you may select between a bustling section and a virtually empty section. It is all up to you. The beach is separated into parts to make traveling easier. 

Sauble Beach, Ontario

Sauble Beach, on the banks of Lake Huron, is one of Ontario's most historic beach communities. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, large groups of automobiles and people would drive out into the beach and have a great time.

Things have calmed down a little, but the beach is still beautiful, and the sunsets are spectacular. Over 10 kilometers of beach await your towel and umbrella, some of which you may still drive on. Pack everything, travel to what you believe is the greatest location, and set up for the day. Nothing could be more simple.

PEI's Brackley Beach

Brackley Beach, located just outside of Charlottetown, is one of the nicest beaches on Prince Edward Island. The golden sands stretch for kilometers, backed by spectacular sand dunes. Because the surf is normally mild, this beach is great for families with little children.

The swimming areas include lengthy shallow approaches that are ideal for wading, water football, or Frisbee. Although the water does warm up in the summer, many people describe the temperature as "refreshing."
