Station Beach is definitely a beach for every age with its shallow water, gradual slope, sandy beach, and a smattering of pebbles lining the water’s edge.
Sunning and swimming are the most popular activities for people of all ages. For the more physically active, there is co-ed beach volleyball every Friday at 7 p.m.
The boardwalk, bordering the beach, is a great place to stroll or jog and catch a bit of exercise. The boardwalk can be a learning experience, too. Soak up some local marine history as well as the sun through the interpretive signs with information about local shipwrecks.
Station Beach is quickly becoming a hot spot for SURFING the Great Lakes. Named as one of Canada’s Top 9 Destinations for surfing, this is definitely a spectators delight. Local businesses offer board rentals on site.
For those that may have mobility issues, the Municipality of Kincardine is pleased to offer ‘MOBI-Mats’ at Station Beach. This rubberized, mesh may enables those in wheelchairs, using a walker, or anyone who has issue navigating the sand the opportunity to enjoy the beach alongside others. The mats stretch right to the waters edge. For those that require even a little bit more assistance, the Municipality of Kincardine looks after the rental of a Beach Wheelchair. The chair is able to be reserved through the Kincardine Tourism Office, free of charge. The chair is fully submersible. For additional information about the chair, or to reserve, contact Kincardine Tourism at 519-396-2731.
Adjacent to the beach and just a short walk away, the lighthouse and museum in the old keeper’s quarters are open for tours all summer, and lakeside downtown Kincardine is just a half block away.
