Oliphant | Great Lakes Guide
Destination Icon



Oliphant beach is located in the South Bruce Peninsula. The area west of Shore Rd. is composed of extremely rare coastal fen wetlands. Close to 80% of fish species rely on coastal wetlands to feed, provide shelter, spawn, nurse and disperse of their young at some point in their life cycle. Oliphant fens also provide habitat for migratory and nesting birds as well as amphibians and reptiles. Some of Ontario's rarest special live here including those that have been designated Species at Risk.

You can help protect this area by limiting your visit to the designated sandy beach area, walking on established pathways, driving on designated beach access routes, taking your garbage home with you and leaving the vegetation alone.
