“Great spot for a family outing!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

My family often visits this beach when they are in Wellington. It is usually not as crowded as Sandbanks. There is a covered picnic area on-site, although, I prefer to have lunch in the park on Main Street and visit the fantastic playground. Later in the summer, I have observed an unpleasant odour from the bathroom area but others in my family do not find it bothersome. There is a grocery store on Main Street where you can pick up anything you might have forgotten. Wellington is always delightfully breezy and one of my favourite places for a day tip.

“Great beach close to home”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Last summer my husband and I went to Sandbanks but the parking was pricey and the beaches were crowded so we came back to Wellington and decided to try the local beach. We were almost the only ones there and set up our chairs to enjoy the day. We brought along our camera and our books. It was peaceful, the view is great and there are bathrooms close by. I guess the only thing missing would be a spot to get a cold drink or a snack, though in future we would bring our own. All in all a great beach nearby and when our grandkids come to visit we will definitely take them.

“worthwhile and always something going on”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We always send our guest to go to the Rotary Beach. It is a nice and relaxing walk with or without your dog. The kids love to run around and the view is fantastic. You can see the official waterway going into West Lake during summer time sitting on a bench and just watching those yachts go by makes your day.

“Accessible natural beauty”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This interesting strip of beach has many secrets that are now revealed to visitors. The site has been recently organized with a boardwalk, pic-nic tables, shelters, washrooms and interpretation plates that inform you on the history, fauna and flora of the site. Nothing has altered the wild beauty of the site, it just made it accessible and brings you closer to it.

It is a wonderful site to spend a few hours walking, admiring the lake and skies. Congratulations to the Rotary Club for providing such a practical site in a beautiful setting.
