Summer is right around the corner, which means it's almost time to get your bathing suits ready. The best way to take advantage of the much anticipated beautiful summer weather is to lay out on the sand, catch sunshine rays and enjoy a swim in the refreshing water.

Toronto beaches are not exactly similar to those in the Caribbean but they're still worth visiting. Many of them allow you to swim in the water and take part in a variety of activities. Plus, they provide a breathtaking view of our city. There are some beaches that do not allow swimming, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the beautiful beaches.
