Long Point, Ontario

Long Point is a spit of land located on the north shore of Lake Erie, located in Norfolk County. It is approximately 40-km long and 3 km in width. It is a unique blend of long uninterrupted beaches, undisturbed sand dunes, grassy ridges, wet meadows, woodlands, marshes and ponds, all on an inner bay. Miles of beautiful beach on one side and the cool blue waters of Long Point Bay on the other make this an excellent destination for swimming, fishing, waterskiing, windsurfing and much more.

In 1982, Long Point National Wildlife Area was recognized as a wetland of international significance and was designated as a world Biosphere Reserve in 1986. Long Point Provincial Park is loccated on Long Point. The region is an extremely important location for migratory birds in both spring and fall. Bird Studies Canada conducts programs in the area through the Long Point Bird Observatory and the Long Point Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Fund.
