This is a man made beach where there is a charge to enter. It's in a good location in terms of proximity to the marina and also within a short walk to the town centre. But it's not fantastically exciting and the charge alone was...More

Beautiful location with great views but I hate the idea of these artificial beaches, there such a tease. But on a sunny day it's not a bad place to hang out for a few hours.

What happens you get hot? An L shaped beach made of sand poured atop a concrete slab. I could some value in it but the absence of water makes it a tough sell.

Beach is closed in winter but the area is great for taking pictures of Jacques Cartier and is a nice walk in the old port.

The Clock Tower Beach is a tiny beach area next to the Clock Tower situated on the St. Lawrence River. It is unique because it is in the Old Town of Montreal next to the seawall. Nice umbrellas to sit under. I found it charming!...More

This is a beautiful clock tower. We didn't go in cause you have to climb the stairs to the top for $2. I looked inside and didn't see an elevator. I would have given a higher score if I went inside.

The beach itself has no swimming and is a narrow strip of sand with umbrellas... Given the urban setting, I suppose it's better than nothing, but I'd never spend the day at "the beach." The clock tower, however, is worth seeing! It's about 200 steps...More

The beach was closed when we visited (arrived there late morning on a weekday). We sat in the shade beneath the clock tower and enjoyed looking at the river for a short while. It takes some time to walk to this far north end of...More

This is a nice beach, with great views of the city, the river, and the old port area. Limited opening times. Beach only, no swimming.
