Lake Huron / Sauble Beach

Like good wine and complementary food, summer heat and cooling beach breezes along the shores of Lake Huron are the perfect pairing. Be prepared before leaving home for your time in a beach community by planning ahead, booking ahead.  Check to see what’s open before visiting, including historical attractions like the Point Clark Lighthouse, the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre, the Kincardine Lighthouse and boat tours to Chantry Island.  In Sauble Beach, Ascent Aerial Park makes it easy with their online system for purchasing park passes (daily and season) in advance. 
All this waterfront lends itself nicely to a variety of water sports and activities – boating, paddling, fishing, swimming, splashing and shoreline strolling (see the links below for more info).
Planning to stay a few days or longer? Book early as all types of accommodation traditionally fill up fast and even more so during the pandemic. If you’re planning to camp at a private campground or at one of our provincial parks this summer, reservations are a must as the parks quickly reach full capacity.
Take-out is an option at most restaurants – turn your meal into a family picnic at a park or family gathering on your deck.  For dine-in restaurants, call ahead to book your table. Take the stress out of waiting or missing out by calling ahead to attractions and events, too, to check on wait times, operating hours and to tickets in advance where available.  
Before you go:

  • Check out the parking fees and beach rules at Sauble Beach
  • At the Port Elgin Main Beach, the waterfront will remain usable for beach goers this summer.  Planned construction is expected to be completed in 2021 and 2022, with access to the beach maintained during the construction period.
  • The beach at Saugeen First Nation remains closed for 2021. Please visit their website for more information.
