Sightseeing and Tourist Areas
For those who like to sightsee take the short drive to the numerous tourist areas such as the Sauble River, the Bruce Trail, the Provincial Parks & Nature Reserves, the majestic Niagara Escarpment, Wiarton, and to Tobermory.
Just up the road is Sauble Falls. To visit the falls there is paid parking lot just across the bridge on Bruce Rd. 13, heading North out of Sauble Beach, toward Oliphant. Take your time and explore and view both sides of the falls. In season, keep a keen eye for fish trying to jump the falls. It is a natural spawning ladder, at the right time, in September, and October, for Trout, and Salmon.
Another interesting area is the Fishing Islands in Oliphant. Continue up Bruce Rd 13 to Oliphant and enjoy the shoreline drive, while checking out the Fishing Islands.
The Fishing Islands are a group of islands located off shore at Oliphant. There is a public dock with public washrooms, and is a great place to beach with your young ones! There are boat tours located here. On most days you will spot kites, and windsurfers in this area, practicing their sport.
For those who like to go a little further afield don’t miss visiting Tobermory which is located at the top of the Bruce Peninsula. This lakeside town is surrounded by crystal clear water, the majestic Niagara Escarpment and is home to Flowerpot Island and two national parks.
