Head down to Barrie's waterfront for a relaxing day at the beach. At Centennial Beach, take advantage of the large children's playground, beach volleyball and basketball courts, and the large sandy beach - perfect for swimming! Restaurants and cafés are within walking distance.

If a quieter beach is more your scene, venture down the shoreline to swim from Johnson's Beach or Minet's Point Beach. Lifeguards are generally on duty at Centennial Beach and Johnson's Beach from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm from the end of June to the middle of August, weather depending.
