    Beautiful place, nice beach, clear water. Many small rocks when going into the water, best to bring water shoes. Toilets near by, overall very satisfied.

    Major Beach is one of our favorites, not far from the city of Montreal. We came here last June 30, 2022 and it was perfect! Only few families around. We are family of 4 (kids: 5&7), paid 32$ for entrance and parking is free. You're not allowed to BBQ in the area, so bring your own food. But there was 1 cute food truck in the area and the owner was nice & courteous. It's a perfect beach (lake) for kids: fine sands, calm water and quite/relaxing (weekdays). You can bring your own beach umbrella/tent, your also allowed to use floaties. There were 2 lifeguard stations when we came. Not a long walk from parking to the beach. Picnic tables were around the trees. They also have a playground in the area. Changing room is open but need a little bit of renovation. There's a rental boats on the side of the lake too. Highly recommended!

    It's a beautiful place, to go in family, friends or alone😍 have the services like bathrooms and showers, fud truck, area for kids, and you can rent equipment such as a kayak at affordable prices. If you go one time, I'm sure you will go back. 😉

    Family friendly! Smokers have to exit the beach, and they clean up everyday after closing. It’s crowded but nice. Water is also mostly shallow so great for the kids.

    Very nice place for everyone and all family... 24$ for 2 adults... Amazing place and very clean 👍👍🌞🌞😍😍. I recommend it 100%

    Very nice spot for SUP. The Major bay section has a 5km/hr for motor boats. Easy access next to SUP rinse facility + parking at walking distance. Huge lake for a full day outing. Going back so site pics coming 👍 Still don't trust Kahuna board fin slot. High Risk of losing so always gaffer tape it so it can't slide. No locking device, major design flaw. Kahuna have been told.

    Nice beach but they should have it online that you can only pay by debit. I had to go back to the street to my car to get the card umf

    First time I went to and I liked it. For a beach-boy like me I can say 4* is fair. Only concern for those bathers who don't like warm/cold water warm-up before entering.

  • 4Josy B. 10 months ago
    Fun time at the beach. Not many people, clean grounds. There is a food truck on site as well as a playground for kids. Bathroom was dirty and out of toilet paper but otherwise, a great little beach to spend some time with the family.

  • 4Felipe M. 10 months ago
    A lovely family getaway with sand, volleyball courts, a park and a fast food joint in Lac des Sables

  • 4Pavel J. 5 years ago
    Nice place for picnik, clean lake, lifeguard on duty. You can play beach volleyball, they have 3-4 fields.

    I know it's not a Florida beach, but still...way too many people for the size of the beach and the current situation that is COVID. I still enjoyed it but wished I was a resident of St-Agathe because the resident beaches were empty 😕
