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. Build the biggest sand castle you've ever built on the white sand beaches or rent a SUP and hit the water. 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 do a little shopping.

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