Beautiful Beach

Our cottage is located at Long Beach, Sturgeon Lake, Ontario!!! This beach was more of a local spot but very nice! Just up the beach is Big Lee's Beach Bar - a must visit!

We took a long walk by the beach from Sunscape Resort. We ended up at the orange market (mini flea-market), cool stuff!

beautiful beach which was pleasantly slightly windy. The sea was warmer than the swimming pools. The only downside were the sellers who were slightly pushy and encouraged you to visit their shops which were enclosed market stalls some distance away

Do not go to this beach. It is horribly dirty, full of plastic and glass. And if you go anyway, don't go beyond guarded section of the beach. Me and my girlfriend almost got robbed. Since the robber was not armed, we fought back and lost nothing. Experience was very traumatic though. Never going back!

I was surprised that on this sunny day, hardly anyone was around. No one bugged us. The restaurants in the area had workers about but no pressure at all.
