Wasaga Beach , Ontario

Wasaga Beach, with it’s 14 kms (9 miles) of beautiful sandy beach on the shores of Georgian Bay is said to be one of the longest freshwater beaches in the world. However, long before sun bathers came to enjoy the beautiful sunny days on the shores of Nottawasaga Bay, the area was an important transportation route during the war of 1812, the last part of the Nine Mile Portage canoe route, an important supply route.

The Town is popular for its four season outdoor amenities with its endless recreation trails for hiking, cycling, cross country skiing and snowmobiling fun, not to mention the 14 kms of white sandy beach.

You can visit Wasaga Beach Provincial Park where The Nancy Island Historic Site is located. The site is accessible by foot-bridge. At the far end of the island is a replica of a late 19 th century Great Lakes Lighthouse. The island derives its name from the HMS Nancy, which was sunk by an American flotilla during the War of 1812.

Today Wasaga Beach is one of the fastest growing communities in Ontario. It is home to many shops, restaurants and is also the site of many of Wasaga Beach's Special Events where you'll find everything from triathlons, Human Rainbow, Corvette Weekend (Beach Cruize), vintage auto displays to Kitefest and Fireworks.
