Sugar Beach Tours

Sugar Beach
A small recreation area in Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario, Sugar Beach is not the place for a dip as swimming is prohibited. Its sandy shores are just fine for relaxing on a sunny day under the shade of a pink patio umbrella. Visitors have views of cargo ships and the Redpath Sugar Refinery, which inspired the name.
   
The Basics
Muskoka (Adirondack) chairs and umbrellas available for public use are scattered across the white sand of Sugar Beach. Though you can’t swim in the water, the beach is a nice place to relax on a sunny day. There is also a splash pad with fountains that allow children and adults to cool off in the spray. The beach, created by the city of Toronto in 2010, is a popular spot for sunbathers and families.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This is a fun family destination and a great spot for enjoying down time during a busy activity-filled Toronto itinerary.
  • Swimming is not allowed at Sugar Beach.
  • Be sure to bring sunscreen and a towel to lay on.
  • The Sugar Beach promenade and plaza are both wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Sugar Beach is located on Queens Quay, just south of Lower Jarvis Street on the eastern edge of Jarvis Slip. You can drive there from Gardiner Expressway. Take the Lower Jarvis Street exit to Queens Quay. Parking is available at the beach. You can take the bus to the Dockside Drive at Queens Quay East stop.

When to Get There
Toronto enjoys the most beautiful sunny days in the summer months of June, July, and August. However, on summer weekends at Sugar Beach, you may face crowds jockeying for a chair or a spot underneath one of the umbrellas. If you can go on a weekday, your chance of finding a good spot is better.

This Beach Rocks
One of the key features of Sugar Beach is the oversized granite rocks lining the perimeter of the beach and in the plaza next to Corus Quay. The rocks were brought from a quarry in northern Quebec and were painted with candy stripes to give the park a playful, whimsical feel, complementing the bright pink umbrellas and white beach chairs.
