In 2002, Hanlanâ€™s Point Beach became one of the few clothing optional beaches in Canada. The beach itself is a short walk from the Hanlanâ€™s Point ferry docks, on the island. To get to the beach, it is a short walk across the island. The beach is shielded by bushes and trees, and includes a wooden walkway across the beach. There is a wide strip of land beside the beach where clothing is required, so keep a lookout for signs. This clothing optional beach is great for getting that perfect tan, and the water is refreshing. Since the beach faces away from the city, the water is clean and meets the â€śBlue Flag Standardâ€ť.
To get to the island by TTC, take the 509 or 510 streetcar from Union station to the Bay and Queenâ€™s Quay stop. The 6 Bay bus southbound also takes you to Bay and Queenâ€™s Quay. The walkway to the ferry is on the west side of the Westin.
