Whitby Beach is close to the harbour and the Iroquois Park sports complex. About 4 km west of the harbour you can find Lynde Shores Conservation Area. This spot offers you a 500-acre wilderness oasis that has managed to elude industrialization. About 4 km east of the harbour, you can find the entry to Camp X (aka, Intrepid Park). This site commemorates the covert Canadian/British School for Secret Agents that occupied this site between 1941-1946.
