One of the most scenic and historic places in Ontario.
Prince Edward County has a rich agricultural and economic history, and they have done a good job incorporating this at Sandbanks. The eastern shore of Lake Ontario has several baymouth dunes, large sand dunes created by the waves and winds coming off the Lake since the last ice age, when great deposits of sand were left by the last ice age.
Most people go to the main beach in the park - The Outlet. It can be incredibly busy during the summer. Try Sandbanks Beach, Dunes Beach, or make the 20 minute drive to North Beach instead.
For an incredible sunset experience, go to the Lakeview Lodge site. Located on the grounds of a former summer resort, the area is steeped in beauty and history.
In nearby Wellington, Bloomfield, and Picton, there are a number of quaint shops and quality restaurants. All are less than a half hour drive from the park.
Visiting Sandbanks in the off season (June or September/October) is an incredible experience if the weather co-operates. The crowds are fewer, and you will have the beaches almost to yourself.
