Your next Ontario adventure awaits!  If you’re on the hunt for a beach experience with warm and shallow waters, along with a sandy shoreline, we have the perfect place. Port Burwell Provincial Park is not only known for its sandy beach but it is also home to exclusive dog-friendly spaces.

About a two-hour drive west of Toronto is Port Burwell Provincial Park. It is located off the shores of Lake Erie and is known for its 2.5 KM beach.

According to Ontario Parks, Port Burwell is a popular summer destination thanks to all its exciting activities such as fishing, boating, bird watching, thrilling hiking trails, and, of course, the beach.

Craving a peaceful hike? Out of the two hiking trails available, the Beach trail is by far the most serene.

It starts at the campground and leads to the beach. That’s where you’ll find a lookout point with a great view of Lake Erie and the beach below. The trail traverses a 20 m bluff offering that picture-perfect opportunity.

As for the beach itself, per the park’s site, it is one of the high points for most of its visitors due to its shallow and sandy shore. Due to its southerly latitude, the water’s very warm, too.

But in addition to that, there is also a dog beach and pet exercise area for your four-legged friend to enjoy. Dogs are permitted within our designated dog beach and off-leash dog beach, which is located east of P1,” says Ontario Parks.

“All pet owners must enter through this designated access point as dogs are not allowed on the beach anywhere else outside of this designated area (service dogs exempt).”

Planning a picnic? Well, your pup can join you as long as it’s by the picnic tables in the grassy area of the park.

So grab your besties and your four-legged friends and hit the road!

Por Burwell Provincial Park is waiting.
