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.

Wasaga Beach belong among the longest freshwater beaches in the world and it is amazing. The hot sand, quiet environment will make you want to just relax. On the way from here you might want to stop somewhere and get yummy fish and chips for lunch as you will be probably quite hungry. There is parking almost everywhere along this... More

If you are a hiker or just appreciate a day at the beach, Wasaga Beach is only an hour and a half from Toronto Pearson Airport. It is only a summer resort but only a half hour from Collingwood, a four season ski resort. The sand is great for beach volleyball or kids sand castles and if you like safe... More

This is a wonderful beach during any sunny summers day. Great for walks, pick-nicks and incredible for swimming and sun bathing. The beach is shallow, sandy and warms quickly; this is a great place for all ages from toddlers to seniors. Most of the organized activities and the stores are at Beach #1 and #2. That also means that Beach... More

This is the largest fresh water beach in the world. A must see. Even better... cruise by in a boat. The younger generation love the weekends. I myself, as a local, enjoy the long walk around sunset... Beautiful. The beach is very shallow and fantastic for toddlers. A teenager can run out for at least 100 yards before its waist... More
