Port Burwell East Beach is a Blue Flag Beach for the 2023 season*

The beautiful sandy beach should be the focus of your next excursion to Port Burwell East Beach, in the Municipality of Bayham. This beach boasts a long stretch of sandy shoreline with accessible facilities and excellent waters for swimming and splashing around. Enjoy the volleyball nets on the beach and ample space to catch some rays! Located close to Port Burwell Provincial Park on the north shore of Lake Erie at the mouth of Big Otter Creek, Port Burwell Main Beach is a well maintained sandy beach. The beach is located near the Port Burwell Lighthouse, which is one of the oldest wooden lighthouses in Canada. The lighthouse was built in 1840 and while it is not used today, visitors are still able to climb the stairs to the top. Port Burwell is a Blue Flag beach, awarded in 2018. There is also free parking available.

*A Blue Flag beach is one that meets strict water quality and safety criteria. These beaches are certified annually as being clean, accessible, eco-friendly, and having great water quality! Swim Drink Fish is the National Operator for Blue Flag in Canada.
