The sandy shores of Wasaga Beach is accessible from eight different Beach Areas.

According to Ontario Parks, “Wasaga’s 14 kilometer long beach draws thousands of visitors each summer. Families enjoy safe swimming in the warm, shallow waters and playing on the wide sandy beach.”

Once you’ve checked out the beach, be sure to go for a hike!

The dunes area of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park offers over 30 km of trails.

The trail system can be accessed from the Wasaga Nordic & Trail Centre and as you enter the trail system you will be passing through an area known as the raised beaches!

The raised beaches are the remnants of a glacial lake that covered the Wasaga Beach area close to 10,000 years ago.

Continuing along the trail you will see foredunes that lead into the “largest and least disturbed set of parabolic sand dunes in Ontario.”

There are about 700 different types of plants and 230 species of birds can be seen in this area.

So whether you want to venture the trails or relax on the sandy beach, add Wasaga Beach to your list of destinations this summer.
