Wasaga Beach Real Estate
Wasaga Beach is a town in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. Nestled along the longest freshwater beach in the world, it is a very popular summer tourist destination, situated at the southern end of Georgian Bay, approximately two hours north of Toronto, and neighbours, to the west, the town of Collingwood. Wasaga Beach is situated along 14 kilometres of white sandy beach on Nottawasaga Bay and the winding Nottawasaga River.
Wasaga Beach Provincial Park is the first provincial park in Canada awarded the Blue Flag designation for its efforts to manage Wasaga’s shoreline according to international environmental standards.
Over two million people visit the town every summer to stroll the shores of the Wasaga’s freshwater beach, swim in warm clean waters and enjoy the panoramic mountain views across the bay. There are many recreational trails that are used for hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Nottawasaga River offers game fishing and canoe routes to explore.
In the winter, there are many miles of fresh groomed trails for snowmobiling thanks to the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs and in part to the purchasers of the trail passes. The town built an addition to the community center known locally as the “Rec-Plex”, which added an auditorium, an amphitheater and a YMCA.
