  • This beach, right in the midst of the City of Port Colborne is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon. We also sometimes go after the beach closes for the day with our dogs who love to swim. Port is a...  more »

  • Nickel Beach is a beautiful place to go. I have lived in the area most of my life and it's one of the nicest for sure on Lake Erie. Very long with lots of walking and lots of space for everyone. Right now (August 2016) the water is crystal clear. The beach is clean. There are times when the small inlet (upon entering) has seaweed due to the shape of the landscape. This is very natural. Go further down where the water moves more freely. The city works hard to keep it clean and offers students employment for the summer. Definitely worth the trip!
  • Took the kids on a perfect day, $10 vehicle fee which is worth it or there is parking outside the gate if you wish to walk and carry in your beach gear. The beach was groomed and clean, the city staff were friendly and helpful. Spent the entire day packed sandwiches, snacks and a cooler with water and soda, washrooms but no snack bar. Great beach, inexpensive family day out.
  • Sunday June 19,2016. Water was nice but that's about it. Beach was covered in algae. Beach looked nicer farther down , but I could not drive there because the sand was too deep. Would have tolerated it if I didn't have to pay to get in. They are more interested in taking my money and searching me for alcohol than providing a nice beach experience. Nickel Beach can do better. I found a nicer beach for free with no risk of getting my car stuck.
  • Nice sand. The water is shallow a long way out making it ideal for kids to play in. There are industrial lands in the distance around the beach area but it is still a nice e place to relax with the family. One thing to note; there is a fair amount of algae right at the edge of the water once past it the water is clean and clear.
  • You can park your car beside the water. Public toilet isn't shower . .. but still consider a great place.
