Anyone been to Pelee Island?


Staff member
I am planning some summer trips using my recently acquired G license. I'm hoping to combine a bit of metal detecting in the water with some camping. I picked up some brochures from the Ontario Tourism office and found one for Pelee Island...

Anyone been? There seems to be some beaches there (3 or 4 I think) - are they pebbles or sand? What's the place like generally speaking?

the best time to go IMO is about a month ago, when it is the major migration route for 1000's of species of birds, can be crowded tho. IIRC the beaches are a bit of both, but there are some sand bars.

If you're wanting to do some metal detecting, I'd hit up Bayfield, Grand Bend, Godrich and all the small beaches in between.
