A "beach" in Montreal
From the twisting, turning cobblestone lanes of old Montreal to the wide open channels of the historic harbour, the Montreal waterfront has many attractions and amenities to discover. And in 2013, that list included a beach!
There's sun, sand, showers, and even sangria - but no swimming! The currents of the St. Lawrence are too strong and the harbour too busy. But it is the perfect place for rest and relaxation and a great opportunity to unwind in the middle of the city.
This urban beach concept might seem like a novel concept, but it's actually a bit of a copy cat. A similar urban beach is established each summer on the banks of the Seine in Paris. And if it works for the Parisians, well, it must be a great idea!
