  • Nice quiet beach at the end of a 20 minute walk trail. During summer months expect an admission fee of approximately $9 per adult. 
  • the nature walk to the beach was great and once out there just pick your spot to relax. I really enjoyed this place!! 
  • Ok,it was a bit of a hike, but a nice one through woods. Went with wife, 9 year old and 3 year old. Awesome. Mostly deserted, water was just perfect- very shallow so didn't have to worry about 3 year ...  read more »
  • Beautiful, quiet, view is amazing. Its worth the walk! It's a 30min bike ride from Kingston ferry.
  • A marvellously undeveloped hidden bay on the south coast of Wolfe Island, Big Sandy Bay is exactly what its name suggests. Shady trees, beautiful dunes and sandy beach stretching out towards Lake Ontario. I've visited numerous times in early autumn (off-season) and always found it to be uncrowded and just what I needed. Definitely check it out if you've got a sunny afternoon. Free ferry. Great bike ride across the island. Easy hike to the coast. Enjoy.
  • Great natural beach. It is a little bit expensive ($9/person), but you almost feel like you are by the ocean.
  • Have a family day out at the beach. A short ferry ride from downtown Kingston. Be prepared to walk from the parking area to the beach.
  • So much algae (this year at least) it's pretty gross. I was picking huge cakes of it out of my swimsuit, hair, boyfriends facial hair. If that's not an issue for you, have at it!
