The summer season is upon us, and there's no better way to escape the heat than by visiting the numerous serene and picturesque beaches dotted throughout Simcoe County. While this area might be better known for its ski slopes and winter getaways, the allure of its beautiful beaches cannot be denied. From calm, family-friendly spots to adventurous water sports havens, there's a beach for every taste. So, grab your sunscreen and a beach towel and explore the best beaches in Simcoe County for your ultimate summer escape. 

Wasaga Beach 

Wasaga Beach

Wasaga Beach, the longest freshwater beach in the world, is a must-visit for any beach lover. With over 14 kilometers of soft white sand bordering the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay, it's no surprise this beach is a top pick. It's divided into eight smaller sections, each providing a unique atmosphere. Beach One is known for its vibrant nightlife and bustling boardwalk, while Beaches Four to Six offers a quieter and more family-friendly vibe. 

Balm Beach 

A stunning gem on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, Balm Beach offers a unique blend of natural beauty and fun activities. Famous for its quaint arcade, retro diner, beach side restaurant, and candy store, this beach is reminiscent of a scene from a nostalgic movie. Its shallow and clear water is perfect for leisurely swimming or paddleboarding. If you're into volleyball, you'll love the dedicated courts that are always bustling with energy. 

Couchiching Beach Park 

Couchiching Beach Park 

Located in Orillia, Couchiching Beach Park offers more than just a great beach experience. The park has extensive amenities, including playgrounds, a skate park, picnic areas, and a bandstand for live music performances. The sandy beach is perfect for building sandcastles, and the calm waters are great for a relaxing swim. Take advantage of the beautiful sunsets from the boardwalk! Did we mention ice cream stands too? 

Johnson's Beach 

For those looking for a peaceful and less crowded beach experience, Johnson's Beach in Barrie is the place to go. This small sandy beach on the shores of Kempenfelt Bay is a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle. It's also a popular spot for kayaking and paddleboarding. In addition, its grassy park area with shady trees is perfect for a quiet picnic.
