There’s an abundance of other attractions to delight all ages, from fun-filled mini golf courses to welcoming wineries. And with an eclectic array of Wasaga Beach vacation rentals to choose from, you can stay right in the heart of the action.

Fun for all the family in Wasaga Beach

You’ll find an abundance of alluring attractions within easy reach of your Wasaga Beach vacation rental. The region is home to boutique wineries and verdant vineyards, where you can sample crisp whites, full-bodied reds, and zesty sparkling wines to your heart’s content, in naturally stunning surroundings. Meanwhile, kids, and kids at heart, will be enchanted by Skull Island, a swashbuckling pirate-themed adventure golf course. For a fascinating trip back in time, head to Nancy Island Historic Site. Here, you’ll find the remains of the HMS Nancy, a British fur trading vessel that faced off against 3 American schooners in an 1814 battle.

Mild summers and frosty winters in Wasaga Beach

The peak summer season of June to August is by far the most popular time to visit. Summer weather conditions are ideal for families, particularly those with young children, as it’s usually pleasantly warm rather than overbearingly hot. Rainfall is, however, fairly consistent throughout the year, so be sure to pack an umbrella or waterproof jacket. Each winter, the landscape is transformed by snowfall, and Wasaga Beach’s parks become havens for cross-country skiing, sledding, and snowman building.

Record-braking beaches and animal encounters

Wasaga Beach sits at the center of a diverse ecosystem. The pristine stretch of sand is, at 8.6 miles, the world’s longest freshwater beach. The lush natural area that surrounds it is a hotspot for birdwatchers – if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a rare Piping Plover. In winter, the fragrant pine and oak forests of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park provide a stunning backdrop for a spot of skiing – be sure to keep an eye out for playful white-tailed deer as you zip through the unspoiled countryside.
