Discover your place on Niagara's South Coast.
There’s no doubt about it, Niagara's South Coast is a fantastic destination for beach lovers. Most of the best beaches in Ontario are to be found along the shores of Lake Erie. Think white sand, crystal clear water, and spectacular views. It's hard to pick exactly which beaches are the most beautiful.
With 30 miles of beachfront stretching from Fort Erie to Wainfleet, there’s a wide range of beaches on Niagara's South Coast to suit every need. The most popular of which are Bay Beach, Nickel Beach and Long Beach. However, locals know that the top beaches on Niagara's South Coast are the hidden gems and private beachfront properties, far away from tourist hotspots.
For a lot of people, living near the water is nothing less than a dream. After all, who wouldn’t want to wake up to the sound of waves crashing on the shore or go for a walk on the beach just as the sun begins to rise? Beachfront living has always had a certain charm and Niagara's South Coast offers the opportunity to own an unobstructed lakefront property. That's right, you can even own the beach.
One of the best things about these beautiful beaches is their proximity to major city centers. Many offer warm crystal clear waters just a short drive from Niagara Falls, Buffalo and the GTA, serving up serenity and sun away from the chaos of the city. Not all the public beaches are free, unfortunately, and a fee may be required to secure your sun-drenched seat for the day. Is it worth it? What sort of question is that?
With the sheer abundance of things to see, do and eat throughout Niagara, where do you begin? Look to the neighbourhoods along Lake Erie, where the choices are plentiful.

A refreshingly different cottage destination!
When most people in and around Toronto talk about getting away, they speak about Muskoka or perhaps the Kawarthas or Lake Joseph. The north shore of Lake Erie doesn't get the same attention. With home prices at roughly half the cost of the equivalent homes in the popular Northern destinations, why not think south? Whether considering a vacation home, second home or moving here full-time, it's worth taking a look into Niagara's South Coast.
