This Stunning Beach Just Outside Montreal Will Make You Feel Like You're In Punta Cana This Summer

A must-add to your 2019 summer bucket list!
This Stunning Beach Just Outside Montreal Will Make You Feel Like You're In Punta Cana This Summer

In case you hadn't already heard, the weather in Montreal this week is supposed to be much warmer than anything we've experienced over the last few months.

Just imagine some typical spring weather with a nice breeze and that's what you can expect until after the weekend.

With that being said, what are some outdoor activities you can look forward to doing now that you aren't brutally cold every time you step outside? Well, the first thing that comes to mind is spending a day at the beach. Not just any beach though, but one that will seriously make you feel like you've travelled to the tropics.

Look no further than this popular beach just outside of Montreal.

TL;DR With the weather warming up suddenly this week, Montrealers might have begun dreaming of their first trip to the beach this year. Luckily, all you need to do is drive one hour outside of Montreal for a tropical beach experience in Saint-Zotique. Details below.

Temperatures this week will reach highs of 13°C, meaning you've probably already started dreaming of time spent by the ocean... or at least the St. Lawrence. Luckily, all it takes to feel like you're in an oasis is a one hour drive outside of Montreal to Saint-Zotique beach.

Seriously, look at how nice this beach looks!

The wide, sandy beach also commands impressive views of the river and surrounding area.

After undergoing some major changes a couple years ago, the Saint-Zotique beachfront now resembles those vacation spots we all long to visit. Lounging under those tropical umbrellas and cabanas, you can experience your dream trip down south without even leaving the province.

Although it isn't the right temperature to take a dip in the water or walk around in your swimsuit just yet, summer really is just around the corner! So you should probably mark this down on your bucket list for the best staycation of 2019.

And if you didn't believe me when I said this beach seriously looks like Punta Cana, just look at this comparison!
