Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach is Ontario’s quintessential summer spot for sun, sand and surf. The beach at Wasaga stretches across 14 kilometres of the South Georgian Bay shoreline, making it the longest freshwater beach in the world.

The popular strip along the main beach features all things “beachy” from ice cream shops and food trucks to beachwear boutiques and kitschy souvenir shops.

Beyond the main strip, explore quieter beaches, recreational trails for hiking and cycling in Wasaga Beach Provincial Park and great canoeing opportunities along the Nottawasaga River.
