Hanlan’s Point Nude Beach

Toronto Nude Beach

Can you believe it’s almost summer time, and that means it is time to go to Hanlan’s Nude Beach. I know Sandi and I can’t wait, we never can. As most of you know our summer pretty much revolves around boating, and in our boating travels we spend as much time as we can afford at Hanlan’s Point tied up to the wall with hundreds of other boaters. What we didn’t realize till last year is how many boaters also visit the Nude Beach.

One time last year, we were sitting on the back of the boat having another drink and thinking (yes, a lot of thinking and drinking seems to happen on boats) about getting ready to head over to the nude beach and we started to see a steady stream of boaters leaving their boats with towels, blankets and coolers and they all headed straight for the nude beach (for those of you that may not realize it, Hanlan’s Point boat docks are less than 3 minutes away from Hanlan’s Nude Beach, if you get a good parking spot). I’m betting that at least 25% of the boaters we see on the wall end up at the nude beach at one time or another over the summer.

We have even taken some of our “straight” friends over to the beach. They all said that they would go back with us any time, and it wasn’t anything like they expected it would be.

One thing I will say is that in all the years Sandi and I have been going to the Hanlan’s Nude Beach it REALLY has matured. Years and years ago it was strictly a Gay Beach and any couples that did show up were not made to feel very welcome, but in recent years the beach has really become a much more friendly place to “hang out”. Sure it is still primarily Gay (and I’m sure it would not exist at all without all the great work the Gay community has done to keep it alive — BIG thank you to those who help keep it around), but couples and singles are more than welcome to go there. In actual fact, a couple of weekends last year there were almost as many couples as singles there.

Everyone was polite, well behaved and everyone went out of their way to clean up as they left. All in all, a very enjoyable experience, you should all give it a try, and if you see Sandi and I there, please make sure you stop and say hi!… Don’t know how to get there? Just go to any search engine and type in “hanlan’s point nude beach” with the quotes, and you will find everything you need to know.

    I occasionally Google Hanlan’s to see what comes up online and came across your listing. I am a frequent beach goer and have been for over 10 years now. I’ve seen Hanlan’s change a lot. Some for the better but with popularity comes challenges (and larger crowds) I should mention I happen to be a gay man. I am aware there is a larger amount of gay men who frequent the beach but it has become much more mixed in the last several years. It is also (to clarify) a ‘clothing optional beach’. One of the reasons why on weekends those of us who do like to go nude feel a bit surrounded by those in clothes. (One of the down sides of popularity of the beach) I tend to prefer the end of the beach towards the life guard stand which in MHO has better sand and a more chill crowd for the most part.

    I have noticed more swingers coming to the beach around where I am and enjoy meeting them. (I am open about sexuality)

    As long as everyone is respectful of one another and we all clean up after using the beach it will always be a great destination.

    It’s a real gem of a place so close to the city.

      Hugh, Thank you so much for your input on, and I agree completely, “a real gem of a place so close to the city”. I have been on Hanlan’s myself and love it there, but do understand about feeling a bit uncomfortable with too many clothed people on the beach. There are so many options for those who are too shy or uncomfortable with themselves to go nude, or even topless for the ladies, so I do not understand why they wish to crowd one of the few beaches available for those who are naturists, or as most people say, who wish to go nude. I understand it is officially Hanlans clothing optional beach, but it would still be nice to have more visitors on the nude side, or at least please don’t be “gawkers” 😉 Thanks again for sharing your opinion with us… Sandi
