There is so much to experience in Saugeen Shores!

Come and explore our exceptional community. Getting here is easy and one visit will bring you back again and again.

The Town of Saugeen Shores is tucked along the Lake Huron shoreline just south of Owen Sound and north of Kincardine. Enjoy our famous sunsets after spending the day at the beach or taking in local arts and culture, then relax by tasting culinary treats in one of our fantastic restaurants.

Attending local community events, or exploring our parks and trails are some of the unique experiences that are perfect for the entire family. Our local heritage and community attractions such as the Museum and Art Galleries are a few of the gems of our community that you can explore.

Whether you are visiting for the first time, or discovering something new in your own backyard, there is much to explore in Town of Saugeen Shores!
