Port Stanley’s Main Beach is a popular summer attraction, a long beach with one of the finest stretches of sandy beach on Lake Erie’s north shore.

The village consists of two beaches!

The Port Stanley Main Beach is long with “gorgeous sandy stretches and one of the few beaches in Canada to have earned Blue Flag status for its excellent water quality and safety measures.”

The Main Beach also has an inviting boardwalk to stroll down as well as volleyball courts to check out.

Next is Port Stanley’s Little Beach which is close by the Main Beach. This beach is perfect for families with young children, a 185-metre-long beach featuring shallow waters, secluded by beautiful surrounding trees.

Another one of the amazing parts about Port Stanley is that the beaches are accessible.

Once you’re finished your beach day you’re going to need to fuel up with something delicious.

There are a handful of dining options in the area including 782 Taphouse, GTs On The Beach and Barnacles Beerhouse and Eatery.

A summer day in Port Stanley is calling!
