Owner description: The Grotto, in Bruce Peninsula National Park, is one of the top tourism attractions in Ontario. A shoreline sea cave with the beautiful blue waters, the Grotto is a unique natural wonder and memorable place to experience. It is also a very popular and busy location, especially during the peak season of July and August and on long weekends. At those times, the parking lot will fill up and you may not be able to access the Grotto.

I have always loved the bruce peninsula. Small fee to park your car, then many different hikes to the grotto. Always found it best during the week--a lot quieter. Beautiful clear water, but the water is very cold. Georgian bay--what can i say? Excellent!

But, plunged in the clear, clean water anyways! Lots of fun!

Great rock scenery and hiking. Incredible amount of visitors here, didn't realize how popular it was.

The walk, the trek and finally the view.. It is one of the best place I have ever been... The view of the cave from the top and as well as from bottom are simply amazing. The deep blue lake add a special flavor to it...

Our second time to the Grotto. We stayed in a yurt in the park so it was only a 35 minute hike. Watch out for rattle snakes on your hike.
One of the most beautiful places in Ontario. The water is cold but it's worth a dip so you can experience the smooth rocks under your feet. Spectacular beauty and very busy. Don't expect tranquility but go for the experience.

This is a one of a kind view, peering down into the water is just spectacular. The walk out to The Grotto is beautiful also. Worth seeing again and again!
