Beaches

Remember to NEVER climb on shelf ice
As winter weather arrives and temperatures begin to drop, we will begin to see the formation of shelf ice. Shelf ice is the result of winds and waves pushing ice floats to shore, creating hills and mounds of ice. Shelf ice is not like ice on a pond - there is moving water underneath that creates holes and weak spots from below. Enjoy the beauty of the ice banks from the safety of shore.

Beautiful sandy beaches along the clear, freshwater shores of Lake Huron make for special summers in Lambton Shores.

The popular Grand Bend Beach welcomes thousands of visitors each year and offers a variety of restaurants, shops, and nightlife destinations along the town's main strip. Grand Bend has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s best beach towns and has been designated as one of Canada's prestigious Blue Flag beaches for over a decade.

Ipperwash Beach is a great family destination, with shallow waters along the shoreline and nearby restaurants. There are a number of Crown-owned properties operated by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry that offer beach access, parking, and seasonal washrooms.

In addition to the popular Grand Bend and Ipperwash beaches, Pinery Provincial Park offers 10 km of beaches and plenty of activities, including camping, canoeing, hiking, and biking.
