Northwinds Beach Park is by far the most popular beach in The Town of Blue Mountains. Its large sandy beach waterfront and onsite non-motorized watercraft rentals make it an excellent choice for active families.
Northwinds Beach Highlights
There is a playground and washroom facilities onsite as well as several shaded picnic tables throughout the park and beach area.
The beach is within walking distance of the Craigleith Heritage Depot Museum and Craigleith Community Centre and only a short drive from Blue Mountain Resort, located off of Highway 26.
It is the perfect spot for kayaking, SUP (stand-up paddle boarding), and for lounging on the beach.
The Georgian Trail also runs parallel to Highway 26 in this section, which would make for a lovely bike ride to the beach. Be careful and mindful of traffic, as Highway 26 is a busy road. It is recommended to stop biking when you reach the Craigleith Heritage Depot, walk your bike across the intersection at Highway 26 and Grey County Road 19, then proceed to the beach.
