The Beaches (or The Beach depending on who you ask) is Toronto's top sandy destination for a bit of sunbathing, some beach volleyball or maybe just a stroll on the boardwalk. The area features four beaches - Balmy, Scaroboro, Kew and Woodbine - which means there's plenty of room to find a secluded spot. And, yes, despite what you may hear the water is actually safe to swim in. Cafes, yoga studios and clothing stores dot the stretch on Queen and there's plenty of local spots to beat the heat during a summer afternoon including ice cream parlour Ed's Real Scoop or fresh juice at the Wholesome Market.

Coming soon in the Talk! forums.
