Swimming at the Bay

If you’re always on the lookout for a pool bigger than your neighbour’s, the mighty St. Lawrence should certainly whet your appetite! Baie de Beauport is home to Quebec City’s only beach that offers safe, specially dedicated access to the river for swimming and bathing, allowing you to enjoy the water to the max.

Because the health and safety of swimmers and bathers is our number one priority, we test water quality on a daily basis. The swimming and bathing area may be closed at any time depending on the conditions. Please check our homepage to find out if the water is open or closed for swimming and bathing.

Remember, the splash park is open all summer!

Read our common sense guidelines for informed swimming.

Swimming lane

To give keen swimmers a chance to train all season long, just like last year, we’ve set up a special swim lane separate from the public bathing area.


Saturday, Sunday, statutory holidays and during the 2-week construction holiday period: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Otherwise, the swim lane is open at all times

Swim lane users must wear a yellow swim cap, available for $5 from the Boutique de la Baie beach store (open 10.a.m. to 6 p.m.)
