  • A great beach, especially if you live in Sarnia. Both the beach and water are very clean. Only downside are the many stones at water's edge.

  • We just went to the shores of Lake Huron as it was pretty cold and Lake Huron is just awesome as always. There is plenty of parking, and there is sandy beach too to be enjoyed in summers.

  • Nice beach . It's still early in the season and facilities are closed. The weather is starting to get nice, maybe summer will finally show its face. There is a ton of nearly kept trails, and the sunset / sunrise are gorgeous here on lake huron. I prefer the sunrises as there are very few people in the morning. Plenty of parking and benches to just sit and relax to enjoy the park. A note to dog owners, the beaches are off limits to them as the city has a bylaw in place, although I've seen a few people walking their dogs early on. Personally i have no issues with that as all the owners I've seen are responsible.
  • Spacious, lush with protected sand dunes & brilliant blue waters of Lake Huron. Secluded park & beach areas with adjoining amenities. Picnic areas, trails & footpaths located in the park, ideal for running, strolling or cycling. Ample parking, no fees & easy access to park with varied areas.
  • Nice and Clean, Easily Accessible Park! My family and I made a brief stop last summer (Aug 2021) at this place to have a glimpse of famous clear bluish waters of Lake Huron. Everything I read about was true. It's unfortunate we didn't swim because of time constraints and weather (very sunny but cool & windy). I marked this place on my itinerary for the next time we visit.
  • This is a nice area to have picnic or go fir a short trail with your dogs. The area is clean and very accessible. You can also see different wild lifes when you go for your walk. Watching sunset here is also incredible.
  • Waves lapping on the shore. Sounds of happiness fills the air. Polished rocks at your feet. Sand that smells like a candle, or, is it a candle that smells like this sand? Enjoy nature's spa at Canatara Beach & Park.
