The Top 5 Beaches in the Blue Mountain Collingwood Area

After a long, cold winter, there’s nothing we Canadians love more than getting out of the city and hitting the beach. Sand, sun and swimming make for a perfect summer day. There’s no need to head south. When you’re having your vacation at Blue Mountain, there are tons of great beaches to choose from.

 

Georgian Bay Family Vacations

Memorial Park Beach

This lovely beach is located on the eastern side of Meaford on Grant Avenue. Offshore are “the Sisters”, large rocks jutting out from the waters of Georgian Bay. Legend has it two sisters swam too far from shore and drowned. Afterward, these rocks mysteriously appeared where the unlucky girls perished.

In spite of the gruesome tale of the Sisters, this park is a lovely place to spend the day. There are 400 metres of shoreline, a picnic area, a children’s playground, miniature golf and clean washrooms. Parking is free.

Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach (the beach, rather than the town) is the longest freshwater beach in the world, with 14 kilometres of white sandy shoreline and is designated a Blue Flag beach http://www.blueflag.ca . Located on Georgian Bay, east of Collingwood, this is probably the best-known beach in Ontario. Wasaga Beach is actually divided into six beach areas; five are family-friendly (including one that allows dogs) plus the main beach which is part of the entertainment district of the town.

Ontario Summer Family Vacation

In addition to the beach, there are watersports rentals, beach volley ball, washrooms, and shopping. There’s also the Nancy Island Historic site with a War of 1812 museum, a lighthouse and children’s activities in the summer.

Little River Beach Park

Little River Beach Park is a pebbled beach surrounded by trees near the Town of the Blue Mountains. This beach is up for a Blue Flag designation and has a lifesaving station, washrooms, a children’s playground and parking.

Top 10 Hiking Trails in Collingwood

Fall is a great time to get outdoors and explore; the weather is cooler and the autumn colours make for a lovely backdrop. There are many local trails for everyone from beginners who want a short, easy trail to experienced hikers who want more of a challenge.

1. Harbourview Park Loop in Collingwood
This easy trail is only 1.3 km and starting at Birch Street it takes you to the Georgian trail, Boardwalk trail, Harbour Centre trail and Harbourview trail and back to Birch Street. While this loop should only take about 15 minutes, it can get breezy along the water so dress warmly. Get a map online at http://www.collingwoodtrails.ca/HarbourviewLoop.html.
