Honey Harbour Gateway to Muskoka
Honey Harbour is located on the edge of Muskoka District as a pretty little village that beckons visitors to the heart of “cottage country”. Its cottage rentals, camping parks, marinas, golf courses and resorts provide a variety of services for recreation. This is also the gateway to Georgian Bay’s fabulous 30,000 Islands, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve that is unequalled in its beauty and biodiversity. It is the world’s largest fresh-water archipelago. The region contains the iconic, windswept White pines, oak savannahs and glacier-polished granite islands where most of Canada’s rarest reptiles and amphibians can be found.
Pristine, sandy beaches, trails, breathtaking headlands, boat dockage, camping and cabins can be found on Beausoleil Island, part of Georgian Bay Islands National Park. The park also provides nature interpretation programs. Access is by boat or Day Tripper island ferry shuttle from Honey Harbour.
The McDonald-Gibson canoe route through Six Mile Lake Provincial Park and Georgian Bay is popular, as is the Gibson River Trail. Nearby White's Falls is a favourite swimming spot.
