Clock Tower Beach in Old Montreal is reopening this weekend for the summer season, with free entry every day until September 6.
True to its name, the beach in Montreal — located in the heart of the Old Port of Montreal — is situated at the base of a clock tower, providing sunbathers with a quaint view of the Saint Lawrence River.

Of course, the beach's iconic blue-toned parasols and lounge chairs will be back this year.
Swimming in the water isn't allowed.
However, the Old Port has set up mist stations along the beach to cool off on a hot summer day, accompanied by a bistro for beach snacks.
Vaping and smoking aren't allowed anywhere on the beach site. Alcohol purchased off-site can't be brought to the beach or consumed on-site, and while drinks bought in the refreshment area can be consumed on-site, drinkers are limited to the triangular area at the end of the beach's quay.
