Travel back in time to Sauble Beach, a place that has retained its cool, laid-back vibe without much change since the 1950s. Rated as Canada’s #1 freshwater beach, Sauble Beach is a beach community found on Ontario’s South Bruce Peninsula. Nestled on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, visitors can bask in the sun on the seven miles that make up Sauble Beach.
Given its French name meaning Sand Beach or Beach of Sand, it’s no wonder the beach is the main attraction in Sauble Beach. As the second-longest freshwater beach in the world, you’ll have no trouble finding a secluded spot to enjoy the clean and beautiful Lake Huron. Head to town to discover fun shops to get your beach fare and trinket fix. Rain or shine, bring your kids along to enjoy Giggles Arcade, located in the heart of Sauble Beach. For adventure seekers, climb up to forty feet at Ascent Aerial Park, a park packed with 30 different obstacles on three levels; real daredevils will love the 35-foot free-fall experience!
No matter your palate, you’ll find a multitude of options for dining in Sauble Beach. For a beachfront experience, consider Sola’s Grill. It offers an unbeatable view of Lake Huron’s crystal clear water as you enjoy live entertainment. Another local favorite is Casero Taco Bus, where you can watch as your homemade fresh tacos are served from the windows of a 1949 double-decker bus. Located off of the historic and relatively untouched Main Street, you will find lodging options ranging from hotels and motels to cottages and inns.
