Canadian Geographic Magazine has named Wasaga Beach and Sandbanks Provincial Park as two of the Top 25 Beaches to visit this summer!
In its Spring Travel issue, the magazine featured beaches from all over Canada and highlighted the unique aspects of each location.
Located in Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach is the world’s longest freshwater beach and attracts thousands of visitors each year. For over a century tourists have strolled along the 14 kilometres of white sand beach and swam in the warm, clean waters. Visitors can hike on the Blueberry Plains a trail system that offers 30km of trails in the dunes area of the park. The Nancy Island Historic Site tells Wasaga’s colourful naval history, offers jazz concerts and military re-enactments.
Sandbanks Provincial Park, located on Lake Ontario, offers giant sand dunes up to 25m high and golden beaches. Hiking trails, such as the Cedar Sands and Woodlands Trail, provide beautiful views of the park. Visitors can also cool off in West Lake, a sheltered Lake Ontario bay or enjoy the attractions of the nearby town of Wellington.
If you are looking for a spot to vacation this summer, take Canadian Geographic’s advice and visit Wasaga Beach or Sandbanks Provincial Park. Both beaches are great locations for the whole family!
