Looking for a beachy getaway this summer? We know just the place! Port Dover is a charming little town nestled on the shores of Lake Erie.

It’s known for its picturesque beach with real palm trees, scenic pier, and lively main strip.

Note that as of May 30th, large areas of the Port Dover beach are closed to the public, reports the London Free Press.

The closures will remain ongoing as the private landowners of the beach negotiate with the local government on a new lease agreement.

The beach in Port Dover feels like a tropical oasis. Picture soft sands, clear waters, and yes, even palm trees swaying gently in the breeze.

In the evenings, the beach is illuminated by the glow of twinkle lights.
