At Naturally in Niagara we know that a day at the beach is a Niagara staple, so we decided to highlight our favourite spots to indulge in beachy bliss! Here are our Top 5 Beaches in Niagara!
A mile of white sand is the picturesque landscape at Nickel Beach in Port Colborne. Water sports are the name of the game at this beautiful beach where volleyball nets are a mainstay and wind-surfing is the activity of choice. Enjoy the active lifestyle or soak up some rays on the fine and soft sand; this is happening place on a sunny summer afternoon!
Campsites available, this is a beach that you can spend a weekend enjoying! Visitors enjoy the pebble and sand beach where the outdoor activities include swimming, sailing, boating, fishing, sailboarding, jet-ski-ing, sunbathing and more! Stroll the shoreline, sit back amongst the trees for a shady escape or simply time your evening right to take in the breath-taking sunset. This is a beach not to be missed!
Winona is home to this 80 hectare spanse of beachy bliss that is reported to have the warmest water that Lake Ontario has to offer. Go for a swim, pack a picnic or take a scenic stroll, Fifty Point is all of that and more! If your idea of a day outdoors is on the open water, there is a double boat launch and beautiful marina to avail of. Fifty Point Beach really does have it all!
Port Dalhousie is amongst Niagara’s most notable locations with a rich history full of water-side tradition and a carousel that still charges only a nickel for each ride. The Port Dalhousie beach is a sandy escape where walking the edge with an ice cream cone remains a St. Catharines resident must in the summer months. You can also cruise the pier, check out what is happening at the Henley (rowers on the water to take in sport perhaps!) and indulge in some libations on one of the many outdoor patios!
It goes without saying; Crystal Beach is a Niagara institution. A summer is incomplete without a stop at Niagara’s most famous shore, and with the bustle of happy crowds there is nothing sweeter than soaking up some sun on this incredible waterfront. The natural beauty is spectacular, the history is rich and the local flavour is one of a kind.
