Port Burwell Municipal East Beach


The Municipality of Bayham Port Burwell East Beach hopes to fly the Blue Flag this summer as we are currently awaiting application approval, joining the ranks of the most pristine beaches in Ontario’s south west.

Port Burwell East Beach can boast not only pristine swimming waters and excellent facilities, but also sustainable management practices with responsible stewardship of local ecosystems.
