Wasaga beach is one of Ontario's loveliest hidden gems- kilometres of immaculate white sand and crystal clear water with a soft sand bottom. (no rocks or plants in sight!) The water starts out extremely shallow (perfect for young kids) and gradually deepens into perfect swimming depth. In the peak of summer the water is as warm as any swimming pool.... More

This beach park changes with the weather, being beautiful in the calm weather and beautiful in windy weather, all seasons. I have tried all the beaches, from beach 1 through 6 and I feel the best bet is usually beach 1, beach 2 and beach 6 (even though 6 is a bit rockier and has grasses growing in front of... More

Been dipping my toes in these waters for 50 years, clean, great for young families as the water depth slowly and gradually deepens, takes a while. 15 km's of white sand, natural fresh Great Lakes (Lake Huron) water, largest inland beach in the world.

The nine and a half miles of natural beach shore is some of the most natural and beautiful I've ever seen. We have come to this area for 32 yrs. Every year it changes but the beach is one you can still walk on. I love the serenity. This year they even had a section for dogs to swim! Too... More

Imagine a nightclub that is packed with young men and women scantily clad then welcome to Wasaga. Throw in part car show and water sports exhibition as well and you get beach area 1. A few restaurants both local and chain around. Stores that schlock typical touristy shirts and wares. There are other quiter family beaches as well a short... More

I found this beach to be too busy, filled with teenagers who are rude and loud. You can rarely find a parking space and it's too expensive. The beach is too crowded. It's nice that the water is shallow and you can walk out far into the water without going over your waist. Otherwise, I find that most people there... More

There is nothing really special about this beach except that it is the largest man made fresh water beach in the world which is large and open. The beach is shallow, sandy and warms very quickly during summers. We visited the beach during the month of Aug 2014 and it is great for swimming, walks and picnics. Not exactly a... More

This is just an average beach - nothing special. It's very popular in the summer, water is beautiful and tranquil but wouldn't say it's worth the expedition. The town of Wasaga itself looks like a sad cliché with streets filled with old, decapitated motels for anyone too drunk to drive home. Lots of ice cream shops and souvenirs' boutiques.

I'd qualify it as the Old Orchard beach of the north. Nice sandy beach, long shallow waters for the kids.
