Explore The Beaches Boardwalk

If you’re looking for a mini-getaway within the city, the Beaches boardwalk is the perfect place to stroll. The boardwalk stretches along the beach for 3 km, providing maximum relaxation while keeping your pedometer happy.

Stop along your walk and get in a quick swim in Lake Ontario. Kew-Balmy Beach is designated for swimming, and is just off the boardwalk. With the historic Leuty Lifesaving Station from 1921, Kew-Balmy is a cool mix of history and refreshment.

Woodbine Beach is also a popular swimming spot and has newly renovated facilities with accessible washrooms and changerooms.

If you’re sick of walking, pick up some rollerblades or a skateboard and zip down the boardwalk. A little thrill goes great with some sunshine.

When all that activity perks up your appetite, take a trip to Athens Pastries. They use authentic Greek recipes and their loukoumathes are the perfect sweet ending to a refreshing day in the sun.
