Welcome to Wasaga Beach!

The small community of Wasaga Beach along the Nottawasaga Bay in the Georgian Bay, 1.5 hours north of Toronto, is known largely for its spectacular shoreline. Dubbed the longest freshwater beach in the world, the sands are credited to Ice Age glaciers that melted, leaving an astounding 14 km (9 mi) shoreline. In 1934, Wasaga Beach was made famous when the first Canadian overseas flight took off from its sandy runway. The relatively quiet community sheds its reputation during the summer as visitors flock in search of fun, sun and sand. Winter—s blanket of snow is welcomed by cross country skiers and snowmobile enthusiasts. As well, the shoulder seasons of spring and summer provide visitors with tranquil stargazing moments, serene beach walks and off-season value on accommodations. When in the area, a trip to the Nancy Island Historic Site is worthwhile. This island located on Nottawasaga River was amazingly formed by the silt deposits of the sunken Schooner Nancy, a British supply ship in the War of 1812.
