Hanlan's Point Beach Photo Diary

Throughout my four months of summer, the only thing I've really been wanting to do is take a visit to the beach. I finally got to do that on Thursday and it was such a fun and relaxing time, I made sure to take some pictures while I was there to share with you all. :)


This was my first time visiting Hanlan's Point Beach. I had to take an Express Bus to Union Station in Toronto and then catch an Uber car to the Ferry Dock to take the Hanlan's Point Ferry since the beach is on an island. We almost missed the Ferry but the captain was kind enough to wait for us to run on board before we set sail.
The ride to Hanlan's Point Beach was amazing, there were sailboats all around the ferry and when we arrived at the dock on Hanlan's Point it felt like I'd arrived in one of those beachy towns.

Hanlan's Point Direction Signs

Right when we got off the Ferry dock, there was an open platform right next to it with the most beautiful view of Toronto, I couldn't believe my eyes. We then decided to find a boardwalk so that we could dip our toes in the water and snap a few pictures before heading to the beach but somehow we read our directions wrong and ended up on the beach instead of the boardwalk, which was fine with me because I was still able to take some really nice pictures.

Since we arrived at Hanlan's Point a bit later in the evening most of the tourists were at the island café having a few drinks while the younger locals met up at the beach to play music and start a mini bonfire. I couldn't help but feel a bit envious of them because they had such a beautiful beach all to their little island that they could come to every day and night with friends to catch up and just relax - it must really be a different experience compared to my city life. Since we were so relaxed and having so much fun we forgot to take more pictures on the blog camera, however I did take some with my Instax mini which I will share with you below.

I had such a great time at the beach, catching up with my friend who I haven't seen for the last two months and just taking in the final days of summer. I couldn't have picked a better way to end off summer than to adventure to Hanlan's Point Beach for the day.
