Wheatley Provincial Park

About an hour drive from downtown Windsor is Wheatley Provincial Park.

Wheatley Provincial Park offers beautiful beaches as well as an awesome camp ground with good rates! The beaches here are different from other beaches in the area as there is a Cliffside that drops down to the beach. The beach here is very long and not as packed as other beaches in the area due to its size making it a great place to relax.

Sand Point Beach is definitely the most conveniently located beach in the Windsor Essex County area. Residing along Riverside Drive in East Windsor Sand Point Beach makes for a great family outing day. Parking is conveniently right across the street from Sand Point Beach on Riverside Drive. You don’t just have to swim and lay on the beach at Sand Point Beach. During the summer season you can rent a kayak for the day from Windsor Adventure Inc located just on the eastern end of the beach while you’re there.


West Belle River Beach

Located in Belle River West Belle River Beach is surrounded by amenities. West Belle River Beach has a reputation for being the go to spot for jet skiers and wind surfers.
