Rediscover Wasaga

Open Space. Open Air. Open Hospitality.

The pandemic has been a rough ride for everyone. Many of us have been cooped-up indoors and socially distanced from one another. We have been busy sourcing and sharing information since the onset of the pandemic to better inform and support you and our business community through our COVID-19 information portal

We are happy to note that the Wasaga Beach business community has continued to serve you through these difficult times. We are proud of the safety measures local business operators have taken under the guidance of our local health unit to ensure safe reopenings. As we slowly welcome our residents and visitors back to our community we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable visit.

Summer is finally upon us so it is time for you to consider Wasaga Beach your Ontario playground and paradise destination. Are you looking for open space? Check. Are you looking for fresh air? Check. Are you looking for warm white sandy beaches that stretch as far as you can see? Check!  

Wasaga Beach is home to the World's Longest Freshwater Beach which stretches across South Georgian Bay and includes a panoramic vista of the Niagara Escarpment. Wasaga Beach is also home to the scenic Nottawasaga River and a dramatic and unique sand dune system, all surrounded by hectares of natural wetlands and woodlands. Wasaga Beach is truly a natural wonder and a recreational paradise with trails, cycling routes, parks, and waterfront access all year round.

Wasaga Beach is a vibrant and rapidly growing municipality in Ontario with over 21,000 residents and over 1.6 million seasonal visitors. Three commercial areas support the Town as well as shops, restaurants and services throughout the community. We are Open for Business and ready to provide you with our special beach side hospitality.

Have fun for the day, or relax for the week. Come and create new family memories with us on Ontario’s most epic shoreline.
