Port Elgin boasts 3KM of fine sandy beaches complete with a wheel chair accessible paved walkway. It is a delightful destination for a stroll any time of the day or you can wind your day down by relaxing and witnessing one of our world famous sunsets.
A popular destination since the late 1800's, this beach offers summer treats and food for those that have swam the day away or played on the sand building sandcastles and fortresses. A playground offers fun for families to play the day away! The miniature steam train that faithfully chugs through Northshore park during the summer months is Port Elgin history in action. The replica half-scale 1836 American Steam Train was originally built by Schlenker and Sons of Port Elgin in 1978 for Old Castle Farm, south of Windsor. In 1983, the train returned to Port Elgin and is a focal point of the beach.
