Being close to Beach 6 is a more preferred place if you like water and quiet times with friends and family. The sunsets are spectacular! (see photo) and the beach is wonderful for small children. You can wade out quite a way before the water gets deep. The sandy beach makes for a great playground for those tots and adults who love to play in the sand. There may be a charge on the more public beaches such as Beach 1 where the restaurants and stores are located.

I visited Wasaga Beach on the Labour day weekend Sunday. I made the mistake of reading a bunch of horror story review about expensive parking etc. We drove right up to Beach 1 and parked behind the shops in a pay-and-display lot. 4$ for 2 hours and we didn't even stay that long. (there's not much you can do on a beach with only 2 people who don't wish to sunbathe) The shops were all similar unfortunately, not overly priced tho. The beach was nice but not what you see in the movies or commercials for exotic locations. The beach could do with a roto-tilling occasionally as it is packed by hundreds of people walking. They could use some more bathrooms and install some foot-washing stations before you leave the beach. Also we were at Beach 1, apparently there are 5 more beaches but I had no clue how to get to them. No signage or anything. After less than an hour we drove out, I don't see a reason to return.

You can't beat this beach for warm clear water, clean sand and fun for the whole family. Our kids never want to leave! The only disappointment is that for a beach that is this popular and well known, the washrooms are a disgusting embarrassment, and why are there no change rooms? We are always reduced to wrestling into our clothes in the back seat of the car or trying to change in the washrooms while holding our clothes between our teeth because there are no hooks on the doors, the odour is atrocious and you sure wouldn't want to put anything down on that floor!

Amazing sandy beach, always lots of room to enjoy the water and the beach. Everyone loved it. We went during the week so it wasn't very busy. We also parked where it was free, so we had a ten minute walk to the beach and the bathrooms were also a ten minute walk away which was fine for us. The trade off is that not a lot of people use the beach at that spot. We also liked that if you forgot anything or needed more food Wasaga is very convenient to grab a few things.

We arrived around 10:00, lots of waves, hot water, and very clean. Not many people, we had fun!
At 16:30, the kids still didn't want to leave, they were still having fun!!!
