General info

On the west shore of the peninsula, the Singing Sands Beach at Dorcas Bay has extensive sand flats, wooded dunes and a picnic area. The gradient of the beach is so shallow that bathers can walk out for hundreds of metres.

It is one of the best places in Ontario to see rare flowers such as the rare Ram's Head orchid and Showy Lady's Slipper; 44 species of orchids grow on the peninsula. Other unusual plants that grow in the wet fens are Indian Paintbrush and the insect eating Pitcher Plant, which derives much of its nutrients by digesting insects that fall into its jug like appendage. These flowers will only grow in very specific habitats created by the fens, alvars and dunes of this region.
