Our newest 24 room motor lodge, pool, lifestyle gift shop and restaurant is finally opening in Sauble Beach as of September 4! Luckily, we’ve been here for a while and have done all the research to help you plan the ultimate Sauble escape, whether you’re looking for a laidback and local staycation or an outdoor adventure along the Bruce Peninsula.
BEACH NIGHTS & TAKEOUT FROM HEYDAYS
The best thing about owning this motel in Sauble Beach? Living above our restaurant, Heydays! We dine in and take out all too often — can you blame us?! Make your beach picnic a casual one with our classic smash burger, charred broccoli caesar and crispy fries, and maybe bring a traveler bevvie for the road...
HIKE UP TO LION'S HEAD LOOKOUT
The views along The Bruce Peninsula stole our hearts from the beginning. Nothing compares to the clear turquoise waters and lush hiking trails — sometimes it’s hard to believe we’re still in Ontario. For more insider information check out our Bruce Peninsula specific blog here.
DAY TRIP TO TOBERMORY & FLOWERPOT ISLAND
A trip to Sauble Beach just isn’t complete without exploring the heart of the Peninsula: Tobermory. This quaint harbour town segways into adventure — think shipwreck boat tours, visiting Flowerpot Island and kayaking — but also makes for a relaxing afternoon walk and a fresh fish and chips lunch.
HEALTHY BREAKFAST AT THE WELLNESS REFINERY
We’re suckers for colourful smoothie bowls, house nut milk lattes and nutritious but decadent treats. Luckily, we’ve got a friend in Sauble Beach that owns the most dreamy wellness café and lifestyle boutique just up the road. A Motelier favourite? The iced goddess latte (it’s pink!) and the classic avocado toast.
SUNSETS & AFFOGATOS AT THE BEACH HOUSE
This is one of our favourite, lesser known Sauble Beach spots. At the end of the beach strip, there’s a little white cottage that sells rich Italian coffee and the creamiest soft serve there is. Sit back on the porch and watch the sky change colours or bring it to the beach for a sunset walk. Nothing says magic like sunset and ice cream, right?
DETOX-RETOX BEACH YOGA
At The June, we’re all about balance. We love to indulge in a great bottle of wine with our girlfriends, but we also love to energize our bodies with daily movement. Join us for beach yoga every Saturday morning at 8:30am for a detox, then retox with us — yes, bubbly will be waiting for you in The Shop!
SUNSET BOAT TOUR
Sauble Beach is famous for its pastel coloured sunsets and there’s no better way to watch the sun melt into Lake Huron than from a boat. You can depart from Oliphant or Sauble River depending on what experience you’re after. To book your excursion, contact Bruce Peninsula Boat Tours here.
MORNING COFFEE & BEACH WALK
Unpopular opinion: the beach is at it’s best post-summer. Sauble is known to attract a crowd because of it’s soft sand, clear water and long stretch of beach. But, when the kids are back at school and most people's summer vacations are over, we take advantage of a quiet beach all to ourselves. Hit up Amicis for the perfect oat milk latte and Luscious Bakery for a buttery croissant.
EXPLORE SAUBLE RIVER BY KAYAK OR PEDAL BOAT
Although most people know this area for the beach, Sauble River is a beautiful spot for kayaking, pedal boating, swimming and hiking. In the summer months you can swim at Sauble Falls and towards the autumn months, you can watch the salmon run through the crashing falls. You can rent your equipment at Sauble River Marina.
TACOS & MARGS AT CASERO TACO BUS
We were sold at tacos and margs — two of our favourite food groups. We’re big fans of the crispy shrimp and hot cheese nachos which come loaded with jalapeños. The taco bus and patio has a casual and funky vibe, which suits the retro beach town escape perfectly.
