We’ve pretty much been beach bums this summer and I have to say when it comes to having an overall family package Kelso Beach wins. Here’s why:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
It’s approx. 30 minute drive from Oakville and 40 minutes from downtown Toronto (depending where you live).
large sandy beach, we comfortably found a spot for our big group and it didn’t get overcrowded when we were there. There is a lifeguard on duty, gave us some peace of mind! It’s a great area if you’re into canoeing/kayaking as well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
there is a snack shack however, we were very happy to BBQ. You can BBQ on the beach (grass area, borders with the sand) which made it convenient for us to still all be together and watch the kids.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
I would say it was mainly all families. There is also picnic tables up on the hill (before you proceed down tot he beach) where you can BBQ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Overall, this is the most family friendly beach we’ve been to so far if you’re looking for a fun, easy day out. The parking, bathrooms (which were very clean), snack shack, BBQ area are all so close and conveniently located right on the beach made it perfect.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
TIP- Take the stairs instead of the slope down to the beach especially if you’re dragging a stroller or large cooler. It’s not as bad as it may look in the video. Your browser does not support the video tag
