The Clock Tower Beach in the Old Port on Montreal is an urban beach on the Saint Lawrence River in Montreal, adjacent to the Montreal Clock Tower in the Old Port of Montreal.
Located just a short distance from the historical district and minutes from downtown, the Old Port of Montreal’s Clock Tower Urban Beach offers a vacation atmosphere with its fine sand, Muskoka chairs, large sun parasols, refreshing mist and a refreshments and snacks stand.
One important point to keep in mind however is that you cannot actually swim at
The Clock Tower Beach. It is meant as a place to relax ad soak up the sun but not to actually swim since it is just metres away from the Marina at the Old Port. You do however get regular misty spray from the many mist machines set up along the beach.
