Notice: Singing Sands will be closed to all visitor access following Labour Day for a complete site renewal, and will reopen to the public in the spring of 2018.

Construction is being done to restore the natural habitat of the sand dunes and to improve visitor’s experiences. Enhancements will feature a raised boardwalk, interpretive displays, a reception building, dark sky viewing platform and comfort facilities. Our hope is to make significant gains that celebrate the rare and vulnerable ecosystem while complementing the popular beach experience. 

How does this affect your visit?

Project highlights include:

  • A relocated parking lot
  • A renewed trail system
  • A new reception building
  • New picnic facilities
  • Restoration of dune ecosystem. 

During peak season, Singing Sands day-use area can be very busy. Visitors who intend to visit the popular beach site should stop by the Parks Canada Visitor Centre in Tobermory for site status.
