Wasaga Beach is one of the premier tourist destinations in Ontario! For over a century, tourists have traveled to the sandy shores of Nottawasaga Bay to stroll along the 14 kilometres of white sand beach, swim in Georgian Bay and enjoy the panoramic mountain views across the bay. We’d recommend spending the day in Wasaga Beach, the sunsets are absolutely stunning!
Wasaga Beach is the first provincial park in Canada to be awarded the “Blue Flag” designation for its banks management efforts under the international environmental standards. For more information, on Blue Flag, chick here
