Canada's best beaches

By Eric Thom on June 17, 2013
Every summer, Canadians make a pilgrimage to whatever lake, ocean or river is closest and drink it in, sometimes braving traffic jams just to get there. Lucky for us, Canada has more shoreline than any other country in the world and that’s before tapping into our more than three million lakes (more than 60 percent of the world’s total) and 2.5 million rivers, many of which are still yet to be discovered. ParentsCanada has scoured the country for some of the best beaches, many of them off the beaten track and all of them worthy of an unforgettable family outing.

Writer Eric Thom and his wife and three teenaged children split their beach time between the Haliburton, Ont., area (more dock than beach) and Cuba when they can.
