Cobble Clean Initiative

Amenities | Media & Press | Accolades & Awards

Cobble Beach is proud to introduce our “Cobble Clean” initiative – our response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Safe Travels Accreditation

Cobble Beach is delighted to announce it has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. The Safe Travels Stamp is an international symbol designed to allow travellers to recognize governments and companies around the world, which have adopted health and hygiene, standardized protocols –so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.

TIAO President & CEO, Christopher Bloore said “We are delighted to confirm Cobble Beach has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. Across Canada, tourism businesses big and small are doing all they can to offer Canadians the perfect vacation. More and more Canadians are looking closer to home to escape from the challenges of and rediscovering their own provinces. When they see the ‘Safe Travels Stamp’ has been awarded to the destination or hotel they’re planning to visit they will know that they are upholding the highest standards of health and safety and demonstrating they are adhering to the global health protocols issued by the WTTC.”


Covid-19 & Vaccination Passports

As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities. These mandatory requirements would NOT apply to outdoor settings where the risk of transmission is lower. This approach focuses on higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings cannot always be worn. Face coverings in indoor public settings and physical distancing requirements remain in place at this time.

Please see below how Cobble Beach will be impacted by this mandate:
