Find your fun.

Port Elgin is the perfect place to shake off the work week and bust out your fun. With lots to see & do you can be as busy (or as lazy) as you wish! Play in the park, walk the trails and build sandcastles on the White Sand Beaches .  Visit the local attractions or plan your trips around the amazing local events. With so many fun things to do, there's just no way to contain yourself! Tour the site and find a place to stay, a new favourite place to eat and, of course, where to go for a little shopping therapy.

If you're lucky, you'll stay awake long enough to view some of the most spectacular sunsets in all of Ontario.

From the busy activity of the Port Elgin main beach, to the hidden away oasis of Shipley Beach you will be amazed at all the beaching options. Read More
