Embrace wind, sun and sand beaches in Sandbanks Provincial Park

Cool blue cottage-country lakes and canals; the gently flowing St. Lawrence River; the waves and beaches of Lake Ontario. South Eastern Ontario has water activities for every mood and sport. Sandbanks beach in the Prince Edward County's Sandbanks Provincial Park faces the gusts of Lake Ontario with swimming and sailboarding. On shore, imposing dunes rise

behind a sun-lover’s beach of fine sand. Camp here for a day or a week. On-site amenities like groceries and laundry make it easy to stay. Sandbanks Provincial Park is right next door to Picton and the wineries of Prince Edward County. An easy drive from tent to table, there’s no reason to rough it at Sandbanks beach.

+ Boating, cruising and beaches – 1000 Islands cruises are only the beginning!

Enjoy A Day On The WaterPlan Your Trip

Blend cottaging with boating for Land O’Lakes relaxation

Lower your mainsail and slow it down in the Rideau Canal, crown jewel of the Rideau Heritage Route. Boating over 200 km of lakes and locks connects heritage towns and villages with deep pioneer roots. Pull up to the dock at the Foley Mountain Conservation Area for swimming in crystal-clear water at a fresh-water beach. If solitude is your goal, more than 5000 lakes in the Land O’Lakes region west of the

Rideau Canal are the place to spread out on a secluded beach steps from your luxury cottage rental. Strap on water skis for a refreshing lap around the lake or take the wheel and tie up in an historic town for a local. Don’t forget to pack your bikes on your houseboat rental. South Eastern Ontario offers the long and short of great cycling tours.
