Woodbine Beach is the most westerly stretch of sand in Toronto’s Beaches (er, “The Beach”) community. It curls the shore from Ashbridges Park to Kew Beach with a boardwalk running alongside the entire way. That wasn’t always the case. Until Lake Shore Avenue was extended to Woodbine in the 1950s, this shoreline was known as “The Cut”. It was a dark wooded area, far from the rest of the city and fancied by rum runners and their friends. Today, Woodbine Beach is the city’s hotspot for beach volleyball. Ashbridges Bay is just to the west.

Woodbine beach is a Blue Flag beach. The Blue Flag is awarded to beaches and marinas that meet strict standards for water quality, environmental management and education, safety and services.

Whenever I get out of the water after a surf I am almost overwhelmed with gratitude that I am actually able to surf, in the lakes where I live.
