Montreal’s got something for everyone, even beaches that are accessible by public transportation without even leaving the island… or just barely! You’ll feel like you’re on vacation at the Clock Tower Beach in Montreal’s Old Port, thanks to its fine sand, chairs, sun umbrellas and snack bar. Swimming isn’t allowed, but misters help keep visitors cool.
Not far away, the beach at Parc Jean-Drapeau is the perfect place to bask in the sun and have fun in the water, just five minutes from downtown. Visit in the morning to avoid the crowds! Last but not least, the cozy beach at the Cap-Saint-Jacques Nature Park is located at the far western end of the island of Montreal, where the Lake of Two Mountains meets the Rivière des Prairies.
