Sunnier days are upon us and what a better way to take advantage of life on the bay than to view a beautiful sunset over the waterfront and escarpment. South Georgian Bay has some spectacular sunset-watching spots and we’ve highlighted four of our favourite places here. Please remember to follow public health guidelines and stay safe.

Sunset Point
Just like the name, Sunset Point is an excellent park to view sunsets. The area includes a rocky beach, grassy areas with trees, walking paths, a playground, an Inukshuk, washrooms, fishing areas, picnic benches, as well as ‘The Chipper’ (outdoor restaurant open seasonally). Sunset Point can be a beautiful spot to view a sunset with a silhouette of the Grain Terminals in the distance.

Collingwood Grain Terminals
The Collingwood Grain Terminals pier overlooking Georgian Bay and The Blue Mountains makes a perfect location for family and friends to enjoy a great sunset. With the pier’s concrete and grass areas, this spot can be great for walking, lounging, fishing, and playing!

Wasaga Beach
Wasaga Beach is the world’s longest freshwater beach with 14 kms of beautiful, sandy shoreline, acting as an ideal spot to watch the sunset. Many areas of Wasaga and Wasaga Beach Provincial Park are perfect for walking along the boardwalk, lying in the sand, and swimming. Beach Area 1 offers several options for food and beverages and retail shops.

Craigleith Provincial Park
Craigleith Provincial Park in The Blue Mountains is a fantastic place to watch a sunset from the flat rocky shores of Georgian Bay. The public day use area at the east end of the park provides designated parking, picnic tables, and waterfront access. This spot is great for walking, lounging and swimming while the horizon turns all different shades of pink and orange. Image courtesy of

Memorial Park 
Located in Meaford, Memorial Park is a stunning sunset destination with 468m of picturesque shoreline. The park features several walking trails, parking, public washrooms, pavilions, and a playground. Currently open for day use, this is a perfect golden-hour destination.
