Scarborough Bluffs, Toronto

4.4
Look out over Lake Ontario from atop Scarborough Bluffs to see sky meet water. The bluffs are surrounded by a park, providing an area to have a picnic or barbecue. Adventurous types can hike up to the top of the 90 m (300 ft) tall bluff and get a good view out onto the lake, which boasts some of the bluest water along the Toronto waterfront. You'll find some restaurants near the bluff. To visit Scarborough Bluffs on your holiday in Toronto, and find out what else Toronto has to offer, use our Toronto itinerary maker .

  • It is nice to see this view of Lake Ontario and go for a swim on the beach. Better even to see the Bluffs from above.  more »
  • You will feel transported to another realm with cliffs and beach. Just a few minutes outside of Toronto proper. Great place for a hike.  more »
  • I still cannot believe that that is a Lake and its not the biggest in Canada either! Lovely marina and beach area with plenty of surrounding wildlife. Worth a stroll, take the camera  more »

  • Very scenic location. A true escape from the busier Toronto core. If you like outdoor hikes, there are many trails along the cliffs to explore. The beach is clean but can get crowded on weekends so beware.
  • Beautiful place, with very diverse visitors. The place is pretty clean, the people that clean up here do a fairly good job at garbage pickup. A very nice place to go regardless of season. Also a great place to bring your dog, their are a lot of dogs going for walks here.
  • Fantastic hiking zone for everyone. Large sandy beaches, beautiful marina boat houses...big hill for the climb out!! Vxo
  • Beautiful park just east of the city. I brought my two kids (7 and 3) and they both enjoyed the scenery and wild life. Go early and enjoy the peace and quiet because it gets quite busy past noon.
  • Nice place to get close to lake Ontario. Prepare to put layers on, it may be chill out there.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
