Calling all photographers, selfie enthusiasts and those looking for a spectacular view! Want to document your trip to the Bruce Peninsula through photos? Here is a guide of the top 7 places to take a picture on the Bruce Peninsula – that’s not the Grotto!
Get your camera ready, because Devil’s Monument will be sure to wow you! Hop in your car and take a drive to Cape Chin, just north of Lion’s Head! Take a 2 km hike down to the water and snap a picture of the 44-foot flowerpot shaped rock formation located inshore. This amazing formation was created by the waves crashing against the rocks. Who knew the water was so powerful! Your trip doesn’t end here; head down to the rocky beach and snap a picture of the sparkling turquoise waters. Throw a few stones in the water, or take a dip yourself!
Head to Greigs Caves to get a picture of adventure in-action! Climb in and around 10 natural limestone caves that are millions of years old. Climb in the caves and snap a shot! Along with the caves and peninsula rock, you’ll also see ferns, flowers, insects and animals. Pack your running shoes, bug spray, and of course, your camera! This is something you’ll want to show you friends!
Top of the Visitor Center Tower
How could you not snap a few pictures with this 365-degree view! Head to the Bruce Peninsula National Park Visitor Centre and prepare yourself for 122 stairs to the top of the tower! Look through the peepholes and take pictures at every angle! Tobermory, Lake Huron, and The Bruce Peninsula- you can see it all! While you’re there, take a 10 minute walk down the trail to lookout point at Dyers Bay, another perfect location to take that perfect picture! Don’t forget to take a tour of the Visitor Centre while you’re there!
Little Tub Harbour
Located in Tobermory, the Little Tub Harbour is a beautiful destination to snap a few shots. Walk down the boardwalk and take a picture of the beautiful sailboats sitting in the harbour. At the end of the harbour, be sure to take a picture of the Chi-Cheemaun, waiting to take people back and forth to Manitoulin Island. While you’re there, visit all of the unique stores and restaurants that wrap themselves around the harbour. You’ll see why Tobermory is the harbour community of the County.
On Board a Boat Cruise
Why stay on the shore when you can take beautiful pictures out on the water? Hop on board a Blue Heron Boat Cruise or a Bruce Anchor Cruise in Tobermory to experience the beauty of the Bruce Peninsula off of the shore. Take pictures of the incredible shipwrecks that can be seen metres away from the boat under the clear water. Continue your trip out to Flowerpot Island to take a few snapshots of the rock formations standing tall on the island. Don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Huron while you’re out there!
On Top of Little Cove Adventures
Are you daring enough to take a picture while dangling in the air? Little Cove Adventures allows you to experience climbing in a completely new way! Twist your way through swings, tires, and rope walls while hanging above the ground! Looking to take a one-of-a-kind selfie? Here is the place to do it! While you’re in the air, be sure to enjoy the view of the Bruce Peninsula and its vast forests.
Can you snap a shot of the lion’s head at the Lion’s Head Marina? Walk around the harbour and take a picture of the boats sitting in the water just off of the shore. Next, find the #findthelionshead picture frame and take a picture with the beautiful view of the bay. Continue down onto the white rocky beach and take in the scenery!
