The Uncovered Beach Bum Guide – Part 3

Balm Beach

This white sandy beach is in a protected cove, and is one of five public beach parks in Tiny Township, with over 70 kilometres of shoreline.

Balm Beach is the only Tiny beach with a retail strip. You’ll find restaurants, a general store, beach wear and equipment shops just steps away.

Beyond the lakeshore, there are change rooms, washrooms, and parking (although it is a paid lot).

There are no lifeguards on duty, so if you have the little ones in tow, you’ll need to keep an eye on them. At the same time, the crystal blue water is shallow for many feet then deepens quite gradually.

And there isn’t much in the way of shade on the beach, so be sure to bring along an umbrella.

Moreover, Balm Beach is a vibrant spot to settle into for hours of waterside enjoyment. The area is relatively far from the main beaches of Wasaga, but is busy on weekends. So if you can sneak away during the week, you’ll have a better chance of finding sandy real estate for your towels and chairs along the shoreline.

And if you need a break from the beach, there is an arcade in the retail strip for any gamers in the family.

On top of the beachside lounging, you can fill the day out with nearby family activities. Balm Beach Go Karts and Mini-Putt are within quick driving distance, as is the Balm Beach golf club.
