Northwinds Beach & Craigleith Heritage Depot

Northwinds Beach is located directly beside Highway 26 at Craigleith, where visitors can enjoy a sheltered, sandy pocket along a shoreline dominated by shale ledges where anglers can drive directly up to the edge of Georgian Bay to fish from their vehicles. During summer, the beach is a popular spot for windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking rentals. The  Mary Ward shipwreck and Nottawasaga Lighthouse lie 4 km offshore where they can be viewed by boat.

Just across the highway, Craigleith Heritage Depot has a visitor information centre and museum that exhibit Petun First Nation artifacts, the cultural development of the Blue Mountains and prehistoric fossils that are embedded in the Craigleith shales. The Georgian Trail parallels the lakeshore with a smooth, packed surface for biking, walking and skiiing along the former railway corridor.
