As beaches go this one is tidy with free changing rooms and amenities. Parking is close by and is free after 7pm. 4 bucks per hour before.

Great beach with lots to do within walking distance. Good amenities right in the beach like a concession stand, changerooms and parking (it's a pay and display system)

The new structures they have put in place make it really nice. Rocky shore, but the water is simply beautiful! Would love a boardwalk -- would make it easier to walk along the beach!

Grand Bend is well known for its terrific beach. Quite large and sandy, with the lovely Lake Huron water. Plenty of pay parking at the beach or park on a side street for free. The beach is typically busy on weekends but you can always...More

We live 25 min from Grand Bend. There are tons of restaurants and stores. Many new restaurants as well. Beach is always taking care of. Free parking 7pm and on. During the summer there are free concerts on the beach.

Parking right down at the beach is $4/hr or $20/day max. If you park on the street towards town it is $2/hr. Wherever you park it's "Pay&Display"...you have to buy your ticket at the kiosk and place in your window dash.
