Crystal Beach has plenty of sand and water for everyone! Located on Lake Erie, provides you a gorgeous view of sail boats, and other water activities. Crystal Beach also has a great variety of local restaurants and lodgings.

Great view of Buffalo - water is warm since Lake Erie is shallow/ Can be a challenge to find a place to park on a nice day. There is a park for kids to play as well.

Its a nice beach next to Niagara Falls and the drive from the beach towards niagara falls along niagara river is very serene and calming (during winter). As it was winter, the beach wasn't populated and had a very calming effect.
