Beautiful sunsetsTropical birds on migrationEasy access
Point Pelee is located in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Although it is located in a Northern Country, the national park lies on the 42nd Parallel, making it the same latitude as northern California, Barcelona and Rome. Due to its southernly location and mediterranean climate, the area is prone to a wide migration of tropical birds, as well as stunning sunsets. It is also susceptible to very strong currents at the tip, making it dangerous for swimming.
As you enter the national park, you find yourself driving through a thick forested area until you get close to the most southern tip of Canada. The park then opens up to a beach that dips down into Lake Erie.
