Wasaga Beach

Let's Go to the Beach

Wasaga Beach is your premier destination located just two hours north of Toronto

The white sandy beach stretches more than 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) on the south end of Georgian Bay and welcomes more than 2 million visitors every summer to enjoy the beach, swim in warm, clean waters and enjoy the panoramic mountain views across the Bay. Wasaga Beach offers an excellent variety of accommodations and restaurant choices.
Because of its size, the beach is divided into six smaller beaches, so if you would like to steer clear of tourists and crowds who flock to Beach 1 and 2, make your way to Beaches 4 or 5 for a more private and quiet afternoon. Dogs are welcome on Beach 3.

Wheel Chair Accessible Beachfront

All park washrooms have wheelchair accessible stalls and new comfort stations have modifications that make them more accessible to people with disabilities.

Visitor Centre at the Nancy Island Historic Site

The Wasaga Beach Visitor Information Centre is located at Nancy Island Historical Site, and provides visitors with “last mile” education about all the great things to do in Wasaga Beach and South Georgian Bay. iPads installed and available at the Wasaga Beach Welcome Centre located that will improve accessibility by providing interpretive information in both English and French on these portable units. Visitors will be able to carry the iPads with them as they explore the historic site as well as view the HMS Nancy video without having to access the Theatre fully where there are physical constraints associated with the existing building.

 

Wasaga Beach Trails

Perhaps the best kept secret in Wasaga Beach is the endless recreation trails for hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Bring your camera, your sports gear and sense of discovery – Our trail system is unforgettable!
