Wander about town
We drove to the top of the hill behind the small beach and wandered around the houses. It is a mix of permanent residents, summer homes, art studios and the like. In September, it is hard to imagine what it would be like in high season.
We also drove and wandered around town. Of course there is the normal tourist fare - restaurants, accommodations, stores and boutiques. As well there is the harbour and a tourist railway between Port Stanley and St. Thomas.
Walk the beaches
We are always searching out beaches to wander barefoot. In Port Stanley there is a long beach to walk west of town. We visited in September, and we had the beach primarily to ourselves. Still we got to walk two or three kilometres and skip round rocks into Lake Erie and play footsie with the sand.
Unfortunately, we don't do beach walks with camera in hand as one only brings a camera in once and finds out what it costs to clean blowing sand out of the camera. So I can't show you what it looks like, but if you look at the Google map, we wandered far beyond the west limit of that photo.
- Hiking and Walking
Port Stanley's public beach offers more than just swimming and sunbathing. There are many cottages on the beach to rent, shopping nearby, jet ski rentals, canoeing, beach volleyball, restaraunts/bars...
