Welcome to Sauble Beach
Sauble Beach - Voted the #1 Freshwater Beach in Canada!
11 km of white sand - 2.5 hours from Toronto - Does it get ANY better than this? Sauble Beach - ahh the sand and sun - some of the best sunsets in Ontario - can you ask for anything more? Sauble Beach boasts over 11 km's of sandy beach. It is a place for families, friends, uncles & aunts. Children love the shallow waters and the perfect "sandcastle creating" sand.
Located just over a couple of hours from the metropolis of Toronto, Sauble Beach is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or a place for your summer holiday. Sauble Beach is also an easy drive from Windsor and the US, and Sauble Beach is FRIENDLY! Sauble Beach has amazing sunsets and has had many marriage proposals made while the sun disappears over Lake Huron.
Blue Flag Certified - Sauble Beach was recently awarded Blue Flag certification
At over eleven kilometers long, Sauble Beach is said to be the second-longest freshwater beach in the world after Wasaga Beach. Sauble Beach has been compared many times to the beaches of the Mediterranean resort areas. The Lake Huron beach was created by unique sandbar deposits - making the water shallow and warm - a perfect place for families of young children! Sauble Beach faces west - into the sunset - giving the village the most spectacular views of the Lake Huron sunset. Near-by Oliphant and Red Bay also have beautiful sandy beaches, and most of the coves and inlets along our Lake Huron shoreline are accessible and interesting places but none have the excitement and life of Sauble Beach.
Sauble Beach has many accommodations available for visitors. Sauble Beach has Bed and Breakfasts, Cottage Rentals, Camping, and several Hotels & Motels to choose from.
