Singing Sands Beach (Dorcas Bay, near Tobermory, on Lake Huron) is great.

very warm, due to shallowness (you can walk for hundreds of meters into the lake). A bit like Miracle beach on Vancouver Island in this respect.

Down the lake is Sauble Beach, also great.

I spent the day at the Cap-Saint-Jacques beach yesterday. It's on the northwestern edge of Montreal Island, about 30 minutes by car from downtown (with no traffic). The beach is nice enough but after living near the ocean for so many years a lake just can't compare.

Hadden Park Beach in Vancouver, the city's year-round, off-leash beach. You can also see English Bay Beach in the distance, across the water.

Dreamy. I went there a lot growing up. And while you wouldn't mistake the waves for anything along an ocean shore, they can still be fun.

If the waves aren't dangerous, and there's no pile of beach rocks or dunes, it isn't a real beach.

The Pinery. 45 mins north of London. Plenty of Dunes.

Alas the water is at record high levels, putting most of the beach underwater.

Not exactly an ocean beach, but my neighbourhood's beach, in Verdun, is only 5km away from Montreal's city centre, not even 500m away from De l'Église métro station (here on Google maps).

It's on a branch of the St.Lawrence river, between Île-des-Soeurs (Nun's Island) and Verdun.

It opened last year, and has been very popular ever since.
