Beaches & Marinas


Take a rest and take in the views. Petawawa is a great location to relax and let the day drift by. You can’t always be on an adventure and sometimes you need a little R&R after that long trip.

You can soak up the sun, lay in the sand or go for a swim at one of Petawawa’s various beaches along the Ottawa River.  Petawawa Point offers a stretch of sandy beach, canoe and kayak rentals and a place to launch a boat. The Ottawa River stretches for miles and the islands across the channel resemble the Georgian Bay area which is a great place to explore in your canoe or kayak.  Just up river you will find Black Bear and Kiska Beach which are located on Garrison Petawawa and are open to the public.

Petawawa Point Beach is an unsupervised beach and is a swim at your own risk area. There is a buoyed swimming area to guide you to a safe location for swimming.
