Scarborough Bluffs, Toronto
While it's winter weather for most of the year in Canada, come Spring/Summer, you can have a ball of a time at the beaches of Scarborough Bluffs. Accessible during the summer months by public transport, this is a great spot for a day picnic! Beware, this is not a sea/ocean but a Lake. Does it look like it is??!! You can swim, indulge in the available water sport activities, bring along your portable BBQ, beach ball and towel to enjoy.
30 minutes - 1 hour from downtown Toronto, depending on where you're travelling from
