It was fun to go to the beach in town so close. Not a lot of sand but the fun was in watching my girls with the sort of surf paddle boards. we did BBQ on the beach and in the end had a good time. Meeting and talking to just people who are there is normal Canadian culture. I had a great time meeting a man my age and shooting the breeze.

Found this beach online, described as sandy, and seemed a decent alternative to the overcrowded Northwinds beach in Craigleith. We tried wasaga beach in July 2019, it was still practically underwater, due to high water level in Georgian Bay. Christie Beach conservation area has a grassy area to play, picnic shelter, old swing set and an outhouse/toilet. Cars parked at the end of the road, there were no staff, so no fees or parking costs. The beach area was much smaller than I expected, probably because of high water level, some shrubs were underwater and the sand was wet and very hard. It’s a natural beach, so there are sticks, grass, and dark plant matter on the shore, water is a bit murky, but shallow enough to just walk beyond it for swimming. Overall we had a nice afternoon, stayed 4 hours. There were 15-20 cars there, and it was fairly busy. 5-10’ of since between families blankets, chairs etc. Photo is at end of day.

A public beach at the end of Christie Beach road. Warm enough for swimming in summer. No lifeguard. Washrooms. No camping. Good for families.

This public beach is nice but it has boundaries that should be respected. The homes that are on the other side of the rocks are private properties. They're actually the backyards of people's homes. Unlike the review given by a previous traveller, the public can not walk along the beach past these homes - it's trespassing. There are signs indicating this. Also, dog owners need to keep their dogs on leashes. There are many people who are there to enjoy the beach and shouldn't need to be on gaurd/nervous about the dogs of strangers. It's irresponsible of dog owners to think that everyone loves dogs. I've also been on this beach and witnessed a man change out in the open, somehow thinking no one could see. So, keep in mind that there are no public washrooms for changing.
