Travellers do not have to travel far to enjoy some sandy fun in the sun - they only have to journey to Canada's capital. Westboro Beach, located on the banks of the Ottawa River, is perfect for a day spent indulging in some great water sports that both locals and visitors love to take part in.
Companies like Trailhead and their rental arm called the Paddle Shack have equipment available for rent that travellers can take to the beach. This allows for a little aquatic exploration along the shorelines of the Ottawa River for the adventurous and seasoned paddler. Guests can try kayaking, canoeing or even stand-up paddle boarding that can all be launched at the nearby Westboro Beach. Since the beach is sandy and flat, paddlers of all skill levels can easily navigate their boats into the river for an afternoon on the water.
While taking tours of Ottawa this spring and summer, a visit to Westboro Beach with the whole family can be a wonderful way to spend the afternoon on a memorable holiday in Canada's capital city.
