My fiance and I visit the bluffs on a regular. The view overlooking lake Ontario is breathtaking. If you are into hiking you can definitely walk some of the trails. We normally go early in the morning to get some fresh air. It can be a little risky near the edge of the hill so try to be safe. If... More

Usually we visit at least once in Summer. Nice park and beach. Very different view of the water and bluffs. Kids needs to watch out not to climb down as coming back up is not possible without calling emergency services. A fun place!

Beautiful bluffs and not busy if you pick your times. Best when the weather is good. Access by car is best.

One of my favorite parks in the GTA, Scarborough Bluffs offer the hiker and the outdoor lover so many activities. I have accessed the Bluffs, considered as part of the Escarpment, starting from Rosetta Mclain Gardens, which is really pretty, and from Bluffer's Park which is located at the end of Brimley Road. I loved the views of the lake... More

Visited in July and found it to be an interesting view of the lake and the bluffs and a great place to go for a leisurely walk.

Wonderful perspective of the Lake Ontario, and the Bluffs. Great for visitors to Toronto. Avoid on holiday weekends as it is so popular access is tough gain.

We discovered the beach at Scarborough Bluffs this year and I was pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful. It felt quaint and secluded with the cliffs behind us and the water in front. The sand was clean as was the water. The parking lot closest to the beach is small hence you may have to walk a distance to the other... More

My wife and I walked 10 km along the water and I think we only touched on the path. What a great public resource. We live on the East coast and there is maybe only 1 km of path along the ocean and then you have to turn around.

It's pretty natural scenic location near Toronto city. I guess maybe a must visit especially if you are a new comer.

Scarborough Bluffs is not a place at the address above - it is about 10km of sandy beach underneath sandstone cliffs along the city's East side. Make your way to the beach and head East - pretty soon you do not feel you are in the city at all. The scenery is stunning and the beaches are great (99% unsupervised,... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
