Home to the longest fresh water sand beach in the world, running 8.7 miles long and located at the eastern and southern side of Georgian Bay, Wasaga Beach draws an astounding two million visitors throughout the year.
When early settlers arrived during the mid-1800’s, properties of Wasaga Beach weren’t worth more than twenty-fives cents an acre; farmers didn’t want to grow their valued crops on sandy soil.It wasn’t until the turn of the century, just after the lumbering era when the Nottawasaga River was used as an important transportation route, those residents from nearby Stayner, Duntroon, Elmvale and Collingwood (and from towns further south) began to have summer cottages in Wasaga.
People arrived in the thousands during the 30’s parking their cars, cruising the beach, and enjoying the sounds of some of the best-known bands of the time.And now, Wasaga Beach offers year round recreation, beauty, and excitement as a four-season destination for the connoisseur of beach living! This fun and inviting tourist destination defines all that a homeowner and recreational lover are looking for featuring an array of magnificent waterfront real estate and beach living.
Wasaga Beach boasts stunning waterfront properties, varied recreational activities, and a tightly knit community alongside the Nottawasaga River.Besides all of this and their spectacular beaches, Wasaga also celebrates the winter season with their inaugural Sledfest, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and a blanket of beauty along the shores.Also home to three 18-hole golf courses, the New Welcome Centre, Kitefest, Beachfest, Volleyball tournaments, Sandcastle competitions, and weekly classic car shows during the summer months, the beach carries a unique charm unlike no other.
