Welcome to Sauble Beach; One of Canada's Best Beaches
The entrance to the lake shore greets everyone
with a warm Welcome to Sauble Beach!
I remember spending summers in Sauble Beach camping as a kid. I
remember Sauble when there was a dance pavaillion holding weekly
dances. Part of the draw was the open ceiling so you could dance under
Sauble was a
favoured hang out of Hippies in the 60's and continues to be a
beach for young people today.
It is unique as a place where you can park directly on the beach
although long gone are the days when you could do this for free and
drive all over the beach.

Sauble beach is great for swimming although is an area where you should
watch the undertow closely. It is a great place for body surfing when
the waves are crashing in.
Much like some of the communities further north along the Lake Huron
Shore Sauble has become one of the beaches kite boarders.
clothing and beach shops are popular at Sauble Beach
The main strip in Sauble that you take to get to the beach is lined
with beach shops, arcades and fast food. Its somewhere that getting an
order of fries and a milkshake is gourmet. But watch out for seagulls
looking for a free meal.
beach fry go hand and hand with a day at the beach.
Sauble Beach camping is sought after for long weekends and summer
holidays. You can find everything from campsites that are only
available for long weekend parties to established campgrounds like
Carsons, Woodland Park and Sauble Falls Provincial Park.
Just because there are an influx of young party goers on long weekends
you should not count out Sauble Beach cottage rental. Once you get away
from the main strip Sauble Beach is great for families.

Kids will love the Sauble Beach Fun World (formerly Sauble Beach
Amusements) - a favourite of my kids when they were younger
for go karting and water slides.
In addition you can rent sea doos on the beach or go for banana boat
rides. If you are looking for something a bit more adventurous try a
helicopter ride over Sauble Beach!
Sauble Beach isn't just about the lake shore. Sauble River is home to
the Sauble Falls provincial park and many swim in the rapids at the
base of the falls.
Once a town that was deserted in the Winter months, Sauble Beach is now
home to year round residents as people choose to retire in this Lake
Huron beach town.
Sauble being the french word for sand indicates that the main pull of
this Ontario cottage town is definitely its beach.
