Sandbanks Provincial Park - Outlet Beach


*Blue Flag certification is withdrawn for the 2020 season due to non-compliance.

Welcome to two of the largest freshwater bay mouth sandbars in the world. The Park offers overnight camping, as well as long stretches of sandy beaches. This sensitive dune ecosystem is very rare and truly spectacular. In the middle of summer, the campground and the beach are nearly always packed with people so be sure to book your sites early. Outlet Beach is one of the largest in the park and faces out directly onto Lake Ontario. Perfect for families, Outlet Beach offers warm shallow waters with a gentle drop off. The beach offers multiple parking lots spread out over the length of the beach, in addition to comfort stations, change rooms and emergency telephones.

No lifeguards present at the beach, water safety is your responsibility. Lifesaving equipment and an emergency phone are 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.
