There is plenty to see and do in Lambton County, but many visitors know us best for our world famous freshwater beaches and the myriad of fun places we offer to enjoy them.
Lambton County welcomes and celebrates the naming of our second Blue Flag Beach this summer at Canatara Park. Canatara Beach joins the ranks of 24 beaches and four marinas across the country, including Lambton County’s own Grand Bend Beach, Grand Bend Harbour Marina and Port Franks Marina. The Blue Flag is an internationally recognized and respected eco-label awarded to beaches and marinas that have achieved international standards in water purity, safety, and the finest environmental standards.
Venture to Grand Bend where forty-eight kilometers of continuous wide, sandy beaches, warm blue waters and sandy bottoms will greet you. Families and friends alike can stroll Main Street for ice cream, speciality shops and boutiques, restaurants and more. North Beach, at the foot of Main Street is lively and filled with young people enjoying the beach and taking advantage of a new, multi-million dollar Beach House. South Beach is a draw for families, children, and those seeking a quieter time on the hot, sunny sands.
In the evening head 8 kilometers west to Pinery Provincial Park, where National Geographic named the sunsets off this 10-kilometer beach to be among the “Top 10 Best in the World.” The Pinery is also one of Ontario’s most popular campgrounds amidst 21 square kilometers of rare Oak Savanna forest.
The phrase Blue Water Country is not slogan, the waters here truly do have a distinctive blue hue that is remarked upon and remembered by visitors for decades after.
