  • This place is so amazing that I call it the Jewel of Ontario. You have a book a camping site many months in advance if you want to camp there a weekend or so in the summer but it's well worth it. The ...  more »

  • You will not regret making it this far! If you come to the Bruce Peninsula National Park, then this is a trek you must do. Make sure you are prepared for it with water, good shoes, snacks and a towel so that you can enjoy the crystal-clear water of The Grotto. Bring a good waterproof camera if you can or a trusty ziploc bag as you will have some good chances to record memories.
  • A lovely walk down to some beautiful natural rock formations and stunning views out over the lake. The paths are very well maintained and easy going but the shore is more rocky and some of the rocks can bit a bit slippy if it's wet. Well worth the trek, just bring good shoes.
  • The easy hike from the nearby campsites to the Grotto is easily worth it. You feel like you have been transported to the Caribbean. The water is so blue it will take your breath away.
  • Great place worth the trip
  • Great views and clean water

Where to stay in Tobermory

You can stay in the town center for convenience, but you might find the constant coming and going of cruise ships irritating. For something more relaxing, look for a guesthouse or bed and breakfast at the northern tip of the peninsula, next to Fathom Five National Marine Park. Reserving in advance is essential between May and September, as tourists flock to Tobermory to make the most of the warmer weather.
