Southampton in the tourism region: Bruce Peninsula, Southern Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe

Southampton was founded 150 years ago as a trading and fishing center.
Of course, the name was chosen after the English town. Today Southampton is part of the "Saugeen Shores", The same applies for Port Elgin and Saugeen.
The history is carefully preserved and maintained and measured by the population of just under 4000 a lot is done for the arts.
The visitor is offered everything from the sandy beach to sports activities, accommodation and meals. The place thrives on tourism and many pensioners spend their old age here.
Guided ghost hikes are offered in July and August. It's getting really popular in Ontario.
Even if we do not believe in ghosts, maybe we will join one for fun. We are not English!
Unfortunately, we also missed the obviously very beautiful sunsets - we were just passing through. But we also saw it in other places in Ontario and Newfoundland.

Southampton, with its many beautiful sandy beaches, is a paradise for those who love clean water and enjoy outdoor activities.
Please book an accommodation in time - we learned that when we went on a trip on a long weekend without doing that.

Please do not destroy the dunes or the vegetation on this beach known for its dunes. Stay on the partially fenced trails and say so please your children. Not only other visitors but also animals are grateful to you and of course the caretakers who take care of the beaches.
The plants are not only beautiful - they also protect the beach against erosion..

"Pioneer Park Beach" is one of the other beaches. Here you will find stones on the beach and in the water, which is clearer. You just have to get in, which is a bigger problem for me than on a sandy beach. It did not bother me in Europe before!
Continue north to the estuary of the Saugeen River. Use the Google map, which can be zoomed in and out.
