Wasaga Beach

You may already know that Wasaga Beach is one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Ontario. And, you may also know that it’s the longest freshwater beach in the world at 14 kilometres long. But…did you know that the beach is actually a provincial park? Before heading to the sandy shores, check ahead on any restrictions that may be in place by visiting the Ontario Parks’ COVID-19 updates page and the Simcoe-Muskoka Health Unit website. By now, we all know the drill too – wear a mask, wash your hands frequently (or use alcohol-based sanitizer) and maintain social distancing. 

Divided into separate beach areas—each with its own parking (fees apply) and personality—Beach 1 is the hub of summer activity located right next to the main commercial strip with a wide variety of restaurants, shops and cafes. Take some time to do a bit of research and plan ahead, book ahead wherever possible – accommodations, meal reservations and advance ticket sales for attractions and events.
 
Beyond the beach, take it to new heights at Skydive Wasaga Beach, delve into history and visit the Welcome Centre at the Nancy Island Historic Site and burn off some energy at the Wasaga Adventure Park with low impact paintball, nerf wars, archery tag, axe throwing and more (check out their Guest Safety page for a complete list of activities available during COVID-19). Book a guided paddle (canoe, kayak or SUP) with Free Spirit Tours to explore the Nottawasaga River.
