This was my first visit to the Bruce Peninsula, so I asked a friend who'd been there for recommendations. His two highlights had been the Grotto/Indian Head area at the main Provincial Park and Black Creek Provincial Park. I went to both, and the combination...More

Fantastic place to spend the day, the water is warm and you can walk out quite far into the water. Great spot to take your dog, although the beach is limited to only a small area for dogs. Lots of parking and easy walk to...More

Our to-do list included a visit to Black Creek Provincial Park or sandy beach as locals call it. We scheduled a swim on our last day in Lion’s Head right after breakfast as we intended to drive back home before lunch. It was a short...More

A great beach to bring the family. Water is shallow and beach is sandy. Lots of room to play. Hiking trail near by. Washrooms could be improved.

We got there midday and were surprised how little people were on the beach. It has nice fine sand, the water gets very gradually deeper and it is quite clean. Parking can be an issue so maybe get there early. There is a bathroom not...More
