Hanlan's Point Beach is a public beach situated on Hanlan's Point in the Toronto Islands near Toronto, Ontario on the shore of Lake Ontario. One kilometre-long part of the beach was officially recognized by the city in 2002 as being clothing optional.


Hanlan's Point Beach was a traditional site for nude sunbathing for decades. In 1999, Toronto City Council approved a one-year pilot project for a clothing optional area - only the second of its kind in Canada. In 2000, the council extended the project for another two years. Finally in 2002, the clothing-optional beach was made permanent.

Hanlan’s was first awarded a Blue Flag in 2005. The beach is backed by a significant sand dune system extending from Toronto City Centre Airport to Gibraltar Point.
