Beaches and Marinas

Huron-Kinloss' beautiful sandy beaches stretch along Lake Huron's shoreline from Amberley to the south-end of Kincardine. The Huron-Kinloss shoreline is divided into four areas: Point Clark Beach, Lurgan Beach, Bruce Beach and Boiler Beach.

The Community Services Department maintains the beach accesses, portable toilets, public washrooms, and information kiosks located at our beaches.

The Township takes great pride in protecting our shoreline. To ensure our shoreline is well cared for, motorized vehicles are not allowed on the beach without a permit. You will also need a permit to have a fire on the beach. Sand dune destruction is not permitted for any reason. Sand dunes keep our sandy beaches, well, sandy! The Shoreline Management Best Practices Guide is a great resource to learn about all the ways we can protect our beaches.

 Boiler Beach

A beautiful sandy beach located just South of Kincardine; enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Also popular for the Erie Belle boiler, the remains of the Great Lakes Steamer the “Erie Belle” that sank just off the shore of the beach in 1883.

You can access this beach along Boiler Beach Road where it intersects with Concession 12 and Huronville Street.

What Washes Up on our Beaches?

From time to time, dead fish may wash up on the beaches in Huron-Kinloss. 

Researchers believe the round goby is linked to outbreaks of botulism type E in Great Lakes fish and fish-eating birds. The disease is caused by a toxin that may be passed from zebra mussels, to goby, to birds, resulting in large die-offs of fish and birds. For more information about fish die-offs and Goby go to

Fish die-offs should be reported to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. There is a “Fish Die Off” hotline at 1-800-667-1940 and for more

information regarding dead animals or fish found on your property visit:
