If you keep your boat near the west side of Toronto and you’re not in the mood to endeavour on a long boat ride, Marie Curtis Park east beach may be the right choice for you. This beach lies on the south west corner of Toronto and is surrounded by the Etobicoke river to the west and waterfront residential homes to the east. The approach to this beach by boat is easy and you have a good choice of depth you can anchor in ranging from 3 feet to 11 feet of water depending on your comfort level. The beach itself is beautiful and is usually busy with swimmers and sun bathers. This anchorage is often quiet, but don’t be surprised to see one or two other boats anchored there on a busy day. There is a lot of stand up paddle board and jet-ski traffic as well.
The only draw back to this location is that the beach is sometimes not recommended for swimming due to E.coli level being higher than recommended. This is not surprising since the beach is at the foot of the Etobicoke river. Make sure you check on the status of the beach if you intend to swim. You can do that here. Other than that, this is truly a nice and relaxing place to spend the day.
