Splash around on Southern Georgian Bay's best beaches on this 5 -10 day Georgian Bay Coastal Route Beach Tour.

Day 1

Arrive in the Midland area today, and spend the day playing along one of two area beaches. The clear shallow waters and white sand make Balm Beach perfect for the whole family. Or plan a daytrip (or camping trip) to Awenda Provincial Park. The beach area is located below the Nipissing Bluff, with five differing Georgian Bay beaches to choose from. (There’s even a pet friendly one!) Access to the Awenda beaches is along a walking trail, so be prepared to carry your beach accessories!

Day 2

Take a daytrip to Tobermory today, to explore two unique beaches, one rocky with spectacular cliffs on Georgian Bay, and one sandy right across the road on Lake Huron. Arrive at Bruce Peninsula National Park (day use fees apply), park at the head of trails and hike the Georgian Bay Trail to Indian Head Cove. Here you’ll find a boulder beach perfect for exploring and hiking (approximately 3 km). When you’re finished discovering this dramatic shoreline with it cool clear waters, head back to your car, and across the road (and a small distance to the north) to Singing Sands. In remarkable contrast to the shore of Bruce Peninsula National Park, the shore of Singing Sands is sandy, warm, shallow and calm.
