FYI the bend & What's New
Southwestern Ontario’s famous sand beach stretches along Lake Huron from the northern tip of Grand Bend to the southernmost point of Lambton Shores, drawing sun and water lovers from near and far. With three area marinas, there’s easy access to the water for beachcombers and boaters alike. Big-sky fans take note: National Geographic ranks the sunsets at Pinery Provincial Park among the Top 10 Best in the World. The area is proud to fly three Blue Flags, awarded for its strict adherence to an environmental code of ethics.
With an endless stretch of sand beach and richly biodiverse populations of plants and wildlife, Pinery Provincial Park, right next door, is a nature lover’s paradise. It features the largest area of oak savanna in the province, as well as a protected example of beach dune ecology. Groomed hiking, biking and ski trails traverse rare Carolinian forest and sand dunes, while down the road at the Rock Glen Conservation area are world-renowned Devonian-era fossil deposits and an exquisite waterfall. That’s just the start.
In Grand Bend, there’s a restaurant experience for every mood, from a celebratory meal at a fine restaurant to a relaxed lunch in a pub. Family fare and casual dining are easily found at a number of popular eateries, including bistros, taverns, diners, drive-ins, pizzerias and beach-food huts.
