Oliphant Beach & Fen Boardwalk

Oliphant has a very wide and shallow sand beach that is a favourite spot for wind surfers and kite boarders. The dredged channels also provide a harbour for small boats. The reedy bays and rocky shoals are great for bass and perch fishing.

Oliphant Fen Boardwalk, located at Oliphant 1.5 km. north of the dock, is a 470-metre boardwalk that provides access to a delicate wetland. Colourful wildflowers including rare orchids, Fringed Gentian, Indian Paintbrush and insect-eating plants grow in the fen. Petrel Point, just north of Red Bay and St. Jean Point, north of Howdenvale, are other local nature reserves that shelter exquisite flowers. The Bruce Peninsula boasts more species of orchids than any other region in Canada and the best season to see blossoms is from June to August.
