Sandbanks Provincial Park | Great Lakes Guide

Sandbanks Provincial Park along Lake Ontario’s coast is famous for its pristine beaches, excellent for swimming. With its spacious sandy beaches with clear waters, and the world’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation, it is a must visit! At Sandbanks Provincial Park, not only can you relax on the golden sandy shores, but you can also explore the unique and fragile dune habitats on a trail that travels along its edge. In the dunes, you will see a habitat called pannes, which is a rare type of wetland, home to a variety of wildlife and unusual plants. The park is also a great place to learn to windsurf or sail, being on the sparkling waters of Lake Ontario. Make sure to have your camera handy for the great views and lake wave action! You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
