Montreal's Jean-Doré Beach Has Reopened For Summer & Here's What You Can Do There

Another beach has opened in Montreal just in time for la Fête nationale. Jean-Doré Beach, located at Parc Jean-Drapeau, reopened for the summer season on June 23 and — in addition to just chilling on the sand — there are a whole host of activities you can do there.

Obviously, swimming is the main attraction. The beach is located along Lac de l'Île Notre Dame, which is typically a calm body of water

The lake even has a 300-metre open-water swimming course with three lanes marked off specifically for swimming — whether you're a competitive athlete or looking for casual exercise. 

Besides swimming, you can also play beach volleyball, grab snacks or drinks at the restaurant or rent watercraft — from kayaks to stand-up paddleboards (SUP). New this year, you can bring your own kayak or SUP. 

If you're looking for a different kind of challenge, Jean-Doré Beach is home to "Aquazilla," a 30-by-35-metre inflatable floating obstacle course — complete with slides, platforms for jumping into the water, a trampoline and more. 

Jean-Doré Beach is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. until August 22.
