Lake Ontario Beaches

One of the wonderful things about our Lake Ontario cottage rentals is that they are so close to some beautiful beaches.  Basking on the beaches of Lake Ontario is like being at the ocean without the salt.  The sand is fine (like Bermuda sand, just not pink) and perfect for making sand castles or sculptures.  No giant seaweed, no water critters and no salt.  The perfect spot for enjoying a day in the sun.sand sculpture at the beach

Sandy Island Beach is part of the Eastern Lake Ontario Dune and Wetland Area, a 17-mile stretch of shorelineLake Ontario beach which extends from the Town of Richland, Oswego County, north along Lake Ontario to Jefferson County.  The area is the only significant freshwater dune site in the northeastern United States.  Beach services include concession stand, changing areas, bathroom facilities, certified lifeguards, emergency telephone, first aid.  This beach is 5 miles south of the cottages

In addition, a portion of the land has been set-aside as a bird sanctuary.  The water on the Sandy Pond side gets deep quickly and many people use it as a starting point for water skiing. The lake bottom on the Lake Ontario side gently slopes making for gradual water depth, which is great for swimming.  Sandy Pond Beach is one of the true gems of the world.
