Taylor Bay Beach Questions & Answers

Markham, Canada

Hi- we are renting a villa on chalk sound and plan to go to Taylor beach. What is this about a gate? The beach is listed as public.

It is a public beach but access is really limited unless you're crossing over private property. Apparently there use to be more public access/parking but some property was sold where that access was and there are some villas there now. We were staying on Taylor Bay at a villa so we had direct access to the beach. There are still a couple of spots that the public can access if you're lucky enough to get a place to park that you can walk in. There was a lot of complaints about the limited access prior to us going but with private owners building I see their point, too, of not wanting people parking at their villas or going across their private property to access the beach. I think the local government should have thought ahead and saved a small plot just for access.

It's a beautiful, quiet beach and definitely worth the walk in.

Enjoy your trip. It's a beautiful island!
