We were staying at Presqu’Ile and went for lunch at a nearby winery. On our way back to our campsite we thought we’d take a peak and see if we’d like to come back to camp next time. The beach is wavy but lovely. Worth...More

Many locals kept talking about North Beach. Highlights: Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the sand, the shallowness of the water caused by the dunes which allowed for walking quite a way out. Nice shady spots under trees not far from water. Ice cream and...More

I kayaked on the bay and then went for a swim in the lake. The bay was calm, and I even saw a pair of swans with their young, although I gave them a lot of room to avoid upsetting them. The lake is warming...More

I have written a review on North beach before and in general it is a good beach to visit. Unfortunately this year (summer 2017) because of flooding from excessive rain and high water levels the beach is eroded. I contacted someone from the county and...More

We went twice last summer and spent a couple of hours in the late afternoon/early evening. The waves were so much fun (keep an eye on warnings re the undertow) and the beach was quiet with a nice combination of sand and smaller rocks to...More

I'm not sure I want to share this wonderful beach with others, it is the little sister to Sandbanks provincial park but deserves to be noticed! A long strip of white sand - for us huge waves and warm water! There 5 other people on...More

This beach is really stunning. It wasn't too busy while we were there and the water was very clean and warm. Our children loved it there.....

Check the Ontario Parks website under Frequently Asked Questions under the heading, 'Dogs/Pets'. The short answer seems to be no dogs on the beach at North Beach. Sandbanks seems to allow dogs, but it would be best to... More
