The Beaches (or The Beach) 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. Cafes, yoga studios and clothing stores dot the stretch on Queen St East and there's plenty of local spots to grab a bite to eat. Note: A long standing debate has ensued over the proper name for this neighbourhood. Some refer to it as The Beach, others as the Beaches. To be politically correct use The Beach, otherwise both are acceptable.
