Kew-Balmy Beach

Toronto, Ontario

Located in “The Beach” neighbourhood east of Lee Ave., this 1.2-kilometre set of sand pocket beaches is served by the Eastern Beaches boardwalk and the paved Martin Goodman Trail. The Leuty Lifesaving Station, an icon of the Toronto waterfront, lies at Kew-Balmy’s west-end.

The Queen 501 streetcar is only 300 metres from the beach. There is limited free parking.
