Blissful Day at Balm Beach

A summer day spent under the sun, walking on the beach, with lunch overlooking the bay is an awful way to spend the day. Said no one. Ever.

Balm Beach Bar and Smokehouse

The Township of Tiny is blessed with 70 km of shoreline along the eastern side of Georgian Bay. Along that shoreline sits five beaches that beckon for a refreshing dip on hot summer days. Balm Beach is one of those and we visited earlier this month while seeing friends in the area.

A walk on the beach followed by a cooling swim will be enough to make most people’s day. But it’s worth noting that there are shops and food stops handy, just across the road from the beach.

Brisket Tacos

The Surf Family restaurant overlooks the bay. The restaurant is open for shorter hours currently and was unfortunately closed the day we were there.

We lunched at the Balm Beach Bar and Smokehouse, opting for the Smoked Brisket on a bun, BBQ Brisket Tacos and Chicken Tacos. From our perch on the second floor balcony the view over the bay was a great backdrop for a quick bite and cold beverages.

After lunch we treated ourselves to Kawartha Dairy ice cream, available at a take-out window at Bingham’s General Store.
