The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

The bluff needs a whole day to unfold its resplendence little by little with each passing hour From sunny and bright to pink skies and warmly lit to dark and star lit skies .. one can see the whole planetery changes in one full day . It clear and sweet tasting water adds to the majestic show of art of mother nature .. people come and laze around or they come in groups to party on the lawns , bar- B - que and have a feast or even swim in the water … overall being close to nature and with your loved ones does wonders to your body and mind

Place is garbage. The local police blocked off the street access from the main road (Kingston). We had to pay to park from one of the hotels, then walk about 1.5 miles to the beach. The restrooms at the beach were soooooo disgusting!!! The beach itself was meh. I would not recommend this place.

It’s a gorgeous place for hiking, swimming, or sunbathing. Also try Rouge River. Feels like being on vacation.

There are several places when you can see the cliffs, but this it the more accesible place.

The park is very nice and well maintained.

Nice place for walk and relax

The address on Trip Advisor takes you to the marina, not the trail. We wound up finding the beach after parking at the marina and got a nice view of the cliffs from the beach. However, after that, we drove around forever trying to find the trail and could not find it. We were following signs with arrows to the “waterfront trail” and just would end up back on the main road without finding any cliff trail. We also noticed that many of the trail signs contradicted one another and pointed in opposite directions. It was very disappointing overall because we drove an hour outside of Toronto specifically to walk this trail. Perhaps it is easier to find during peak season because people are around to point you in the right direction. Good luck finding it!

Very clear water, you can see to the bottom. The bluffs are pretty. Restroom was hideous. I recommend changing your clothing elsewhere. All toilets were stopped up and there was an inch of waste water on the floor from the overflowed toilets. No place to set your clothes or bag while changing clothing. The actual change rooms were locked and could not be used.

This is one of the amazing places that i have visited by now. The water at beach is crystal clear and there is a park along the beach where we can have a walk and eat along with our friends and family. I loved the place and enjoyed so much here.
