Are there other beaches besides Wasaga Beach for families?

Yes, Dear reader there are some fantastic beaches all around Southern Georgian Bay, besides Wasaga Beach for families. Summer will soon be upon us and, many of you will be more than ready to visit some of our local area beaches.

Wasaga Beaches:

Many city people like to head to Wasaga beaches Areas 1-6 for their well earned day at the beach. Having said that, your family may not want that “type” of beach day. If you are looking for other beaches besides Wasaga Beach for families… Lucky for you there are many smaller beaches and conservation areas for families throughout Southern Georgian Bay to explore. The unknown beaches and swimming areas offer something a little off the beaten path for families looking for new adventures.

Looking to hike to a waterfall? Maybe scuba diving is more your thing? If you prefer plain ole swimming that is fine too! Southern Georgian Bay is home to many gorgeous areas to partake in these awesome summer activities.

Collingwood Beach:

Sunset Point Park is the main beach in Collingwood so can get pretty busy on hot summer days.
