Clear water beach! You can spend a day at this place. Some weekend in summer you will see motorcycle show and car show.

Not much to do other than the beach and if you try to park there, they make it difficult to pay their parking fees so they can ticket you and make 10 times as much in fines. I have made my last visit there and refuse to spend any more money there.

My family and i like Sauble Beach. Every year during the summer we go to Sauble Beach a few times.

Sauble Beach is one of the best beaches in Ontario Canada. White and soft sand, shallow and transparent water. It is a beach worth going to.

Sauble Beach is amazing. It is easy to understand why there are 425 good/excellent reviews and only 27 bad comments. I looked at the negative reviews to discover why some gave Sauble a poor rating. The answer was abundantly clear. Poor ratings came from people who got a ticket for violating the posted rules. The signs are large and plentiful. The sign includes pictures. A picture of a BBQ with an X over it is a very clear message. Some complained they did not receive a warning. The signs on the beach were ample warning. If the posted speed drops to 50, and you continue to drive at 80 you may get fined. It is that simple. One complaint stated they needed heat for a rice cooker on the beach and were given a fine. A BBQ to cook or heat is a violation and the sign was the warning. The fines are high to be a deterrent, not a revenue grab. Stop whining and obey the law. Don't blame the by-law officer for not letting you off with a warning. If you disregarded the sign, don't pass the blame.

We spent a day at Sauble Beach and extremely enjoyed the clear water, the amazing sand and the sun. One of the best beaches in the area. If you go further north, it is not so crowded. Don’t miss to pay for parking using the app.

Got a parking fine for $50 in spite of paying for $30 parking and displaying the tag on the dash. They require a license plate number on the dash and if it doesn't match by even 1 digit they fine you. Better be careful; its a real scam being run by the authorities in the area!

Lots of negative reviews from people who have been fined for things like barbecuing and drinking on the beach. The signage is very clear…these things are prohibited (public drinking is not allowed anywhere in Ontario), as are having dogs and four-sided tents on the beach. If you break the rules, you are taking a chance and may be fined. End of story. There has been a huge influx of visitors at Sauble over the past decade and the beach is ridiculously crowded most weekends in the summer. People claim not to know they are breaking the rules and are “victims”. These people also claim they are helping the economy by being there when the reality is many come for just the day and bring their own food (to bbq at the beach) and therefore are not spending money on restaurants or lodging. More unsavoury practices include using “changing” tents on the beach as washrooms and burying human waste in the sand, and allowing dogs to bark, run wild and relieve themselves in the same place children are playing.

I love Sauble beach. It is incredibly beautiful with warm water and white sand. The quaint town has many fantastic business that offer food, drinks, souvenirs and entertainment. It is a beautiful place with a few rules that need to be followed so everyone can have an enjoyable and comfortable visit.

Be careful with the bylaw officers. They are like vultures. My mistake was I brought BBQ (didn’t start yet) No worming and he gave us $ 490 fine. He told us attempted to use BBQ. They charge $30 for day parking with no service.
