More info: Wasaga Beach is located just 2 hours north of Toronto, at the southern end of Ontario's Georgian Bay and the sandy expanse stretches for 14kms forming the world's longest freshwater beach.
The white sandy shoreline stretches across South Georgian Bay and includes panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere.
Wasaga Beach was the first provincial park in Canada to be awarded the “Blue Flag” designation under the international environmental standards. This natural area of 6.8 hectares protects wildlife habitat and nesting shorebirds, including the Piping Plover, which is endangered.
The Wasaga Beach Welcome Centre was officially opened in 2012 to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and highlight the natural and cultural riches of the Wasaga Beach area. The Welcome Centre is the gateway to the Nancy Island Historic Site which features a museum, theatre, and a replica of a Great Lakes lighthouse.
