Beach Photo Tour
Tobermory Area
Bruce Peninsula

There are two attractive beaches in the Tobermory area.

2001 Notes: Water is down three feet.
This is the general rule for Canadian Beaches
Property owners own to the high water mark, then there is a 66-foot marine allowance, the government owns the rest.

There are always exception to the rule.

It appears that the cottage owners in some areas (Dunks Bay and a few others places) do own to the waters edge. They only own to the waters edge so if you stay in the water the cottage owners canít say anything. A good example of this is the native beach at Sauble Beach. Also, Properties must be well marked before they can press charges for trespassing.

Singing Sands - Dorcas Bay
This is a very shallow warm water soft sand beach similar to Red Bay or Oliphant. The photos show a very large beach. A few years ago the water was up to the parking lot.

Dunks Bay
This is a deep cold water soft sand beach similar to Lionís Head. The photos show a very large beach. A few years ago the water was up to the cottages. The area is very scenic with the Bruce Trail going around the bay with interesting sights.
