This lovely, sandy beach surrounded by mature trees is Brome Lake’s preferred swimming destination. Visitors and locals flock here as soon as summer sets in to enjoy its peaceful atmosphere, safe environment, pristine water and fantastic views.
Douglass Beach is a fully equipped facility, with changing rooms, washrooms, an outdoor shower, a volleyball court, picnic tables and easy access to the lake for small non-motorized boats. You can rent a kayak to explore the lake as well. Between June 22 and August 18, a lifeguard is on duty every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
From the beach you can take the Coldbrook Path to Knowlton (2.2 km) or Trestle Cove (1.1 km). The shady trail provides great vantage points from which to admire the lake and the many beautiful properties lining its shores.
Douglass Beach is accessible to all. For people with limited mobility, an all-terrain wheelchair is available for free, making it easier to get to the water. For more information, enquire with the lifeguard.
