Sunnier days are soon upon us and what a better way to take advantage of life on the bay than to view a beautiful sunset over the waterfront and escarpment. South Georgian Bay has some spectacle sunset-watching spots and we’ve highlighted four of our favourite places here. Please remember to follow public health guidelines and stay safe. Outdoor gatherings are currently limited to five people. Ontarians are strongly urged to continue staying at home and limit trips outside their household and between other regions for essential reasons only.
Just like the name, Sunset Point is a excellent park to view sunsets. The area includes a rocky beach, grassy areas with trees, walking paths, a playground, an inukshuk, washrooms, fishing areas, picnic benches, as well as ‘The Chipper’ (open in the summer months). Sunset Point can be a beautiful spot to view a sunset with a silhouette of the Grain Terminals in the distance.
This Ontario Park in The Blue Mountains is a fantastic place to watch a sunset from the flat rocky shores of Georgian Bay. The public day use area at the east end of the park provides designated parking, picnic tables, and waterfront access. This spot is great for walking, lounging and swimming while the horizon turns all different shades of pink and orange.
The Collingwood Grain Terminals pier overlooking Georgian Bay and The Blue Mountains makes a perfect location for family and friends to enjoy a great sunset. With the pier’s concrete and grass areas, this spot can be great for walking, lounging, fishing, and playing!
This Ontario Park is the world’s longest freshwater beach with 14 km of beautiful, sandy shoreline acting as an ideal spot to watch the sunset. Wasaga Beach is great for walking along the boardwalk, lying in the sand, and swimming! Washrooms are available along the beach and designated parking is available.
Located in Meaford, Memorial Park is a stunning sunset destination with 468m of picturesque shoreline. The park features several walking trails, parking, public washrooms, pavilions, and a playground. Currently open for day use, this is a perfect golden-hour destination.
