Ontario’s Best Beaches

We can help you find a perfect beach to forget about summer’s hot hot heat and humidity.

Ontario beaches can be sandy or rocky, all of them are some of the finest fresh water shorelines of the world.

Choose from public beaches or private beach resorts.

Beaches are a fabulous spot for summer sports such as beach volleyball, SUP boarding, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, boating, water skiing and beach walking. If there is one thing we stress, please be safe and wear your life jacket or pfd when out on the water.
