“Take a swim in crystal cave waters”
Some call it Cyprus Lake Grotto, some call it The Grotto at Bruce Peninsula National Park and some call it Georgian Bay Grotto. Whatever you call it, this is one of the most beautiful spots in Canada. Everyone hikes to the Grotto. It’s the most popular attraction in Bruce Peninsula National Park. A big cave on the shore, it was carved out by the waves of Georgian Bay over thousands of years. From the Bruce Trail climb down through the natural chimney in the rock of the Niagara Escarpment. It’s a pristine setting; there are no signs, lights, stairs or handrails here. The cave itself is stunning, with sunlight from the outside revealing a brilliant underwater tunnel on the inside. You can walk along a ledge inside its cavity or swim in its cool, clear, turquoise water. It’s a 30-minute hike to the Grotto from the Head of Trails parking lot at Cyprus Lake parking lot. Take the Georgian Bay Trail to the shore then follow the Bruce Trail west along the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The Grotto is located just past Indian Head Cove – another naturally stunning attraction. To avoid crowds, visit in spring or fall, yet rent your campground early, as spots fill up fast! About Bruce Peninsula National Park: In the heart of a World Biosphere Reserve, the 'Bruce' is place of global significance.
