The Scarborough Bluffs are one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in Canada and it shows by how often they are photographed. Along with other Instagram favourites the Bay of Fundy and Whistler, it’s a sight that everyone should visit at some point in their lives. Let’s take a look at what makes the Bluffs so unique.
While there is loads to see and do when you go to the Scarborough Bluffs, you should always start with the view. The two best places to look out from are Scarborough Heights Park and Cudia Park which has the Cathedral Bluffs. These are the two most famous vistas the area has to offer. Whether you’re standing at the top looking out over Lake Ontario, or down on the shore looking back up at the rocks, these stunning views are sure to leave you breathless. And while many people just visit for the escarpment, there is plenty more to see and do while you’re here.
>> Once you’re done exploring, if you want to take some time to relax on a beach, or take a dip in the water you can do that here too. Visit Bluffer’s Park and let your toes enjoy the warm, soft sand as you soak in the sun. Much less crowded than many of the other beaches along Lake Ontario this is a great place to relax and enjoy the many sights and sounds that nature has to offer. There’s even a waterfall nearby.
Don’t miss a chance to take a scenic stroll through the area’s nine different parks. 90 meters above the coastline, there are trails and paths that span 15km and go through a number of different ecological areas. There are some small wooded areas, marshes, grasslands, and more so if you come prepared, you’re bound to see some pretty amazing and unique wildlife that you won’t find elsewhere in the GTA.
With so much to see and do here it’s no wonder that the #ScarboroughBluffs (61.4k) have been tagged more times than Toronto landmarks #ScotiabankArena (12.1k), #QueenStWest (22.9k) and #YorkdaleMall (23.8k) combined.
