Montreal's Verdun Beach Is Reopening This Weekend

You know it's finally beach season in Montreal when one of the city's most popular summer hangouts, Verdun Beach, reopens — which means the city's beach season officially starts this weekend.

Get your sunscreen and beach towels ready because Verdun Beach is set to open for the summer season on Saturday, June 12. However, there will be special COVID-19 rules in place.

For starters, the number of people allowed at the beach will be limited compared to the usual capacity. 

Your time at the beach will also be limited to 45 minutes, and there are no reservations. 

Until the beach opens on Saturday, the swimming area is unsupervised and swimming is not recommended. The Arrondissement de Verdun is also letting people know that its team will be filling sand on June 10 and 11 so "respect the signage."

It's expected to be 29 degrees and sunny in Montreal on Saturday — perfect for a day chilling on the shores of the Saint-Lawrence River.
