Best Beaches in Peterborough-Surrounding Areas


Beaches the whole Family will love!

It's Beach Season

When the weather heats up and the kids are out of school – there is only so much you can do to keep them occupied and unless you have a pool – the Beach is big winner for kids of every age.  Of course for the parents, a beach with nearby bathroom facilities makes it much more attractive and if there is a playground even better.  



Beavermead Beach at Beavermead Park – 2011 Ashburnham Drive, Peterborough – washrooms, playground

Bobcaygeon Beach Park  – Park St. & Lance St., Bobcaygeon – washrooms, picnic tables, playground

Ennismore Waterfront Beach & Park – 1053 Ennis Rd., Ennismore – washrooms, picnic area, pavilion, playground

Lakefield Beach & Playground – 64 Hague Blvd., Lakefield – washrooms, playground (food nearby)

Sandy Beach – 1221 Lakehurst Rd., Buckhorn – washrooms, picnic tables, benches, parking (very shallow and gradual walk in  -great for little ones)

Cobourg Beach – 138 Division St., Cobourg – outdoor pool, splashpad, washrooms, playground (food nearby)

Please note*  – I cannot verify if these beaches have supervision or life guards (I assume most won’t other than Cobourg Beach) or when they might be supervised. So keep that in mind if you are taking children with you.  My list is not complete, but these are the ones I have personally visited or taken my own children to.  These beaches are all over the area. Some are very worth the drive!

*please be aware – some Lakes in Ontario have been experiencing blue-green algae or other hazards monitored by the Public Health Unit. Check online before heading out as the Public Health Unit tests and monitors all public beaches and will publish beaches that are closed.

Hi there! My name is Christine and I grew up in this area. I have been a Realtor over 15 years but when I’m not making my clients’ dreams come true, I enjoy spending my time doing anything on the water, gardening, going to the Farmers Market on Saturdays at Morrow Park or enjoying a Music Fest Concert at Del Crary Park. I currently live in Peterborough with my two pups, Theodore & Yogi. See you around town!
