Welcome to Hilton Beach!

A culturally vibrant village on the Northeast shore of St. Joseph Island, Hilton Beach has been a popular tourist destination for over a century.

The Hilton Beach Marina is known as one of the largest in the North Channel and one of the most scenic on the Great Lakes, and welcomes hundreds if not thousands of visiting boaters every summer.

Hilton Beach is also famed for its array of cultural events throughout the year. Arts at the Dock features work from the district's best artists. The Classic Car Show is fun and interesting for the whole family with over 75 vehicles spanning the past century. The Old Town Hall Concert Series has attracted the biggest names in Canadian music, including Jeff Healey's Jazz Wizards, Amy Sky, Susan Aglukark and Michael Kaeshammer. The Hilton Beach Community Night is the biggest night of the year with food, games and a parade through the Village.

Hilton Beach is a very progressive and modern community. In the past 20 years, the marina has gone through two major renovations, the Hilton Community Hall was restored and expanded, the Waterfront Centre office building was built and later expanded, a municipal sewage and water treatment and distribution system was installed, a multi-sport recreation surface was completed, and a community workshop garage was built, among other projects.

We focus on our youth by employing several young people in summer placements throughout the Village, by providing skateboarding, basketball and other equipment at the recreation surface, and by operating a year-round recreation program for young people of all ages.

Hilton Beach caters to tourists with a general store, an LCBO outlet, three restaurants, accommodations and various gift shops and other services. Our full-service marina provides free wifi Internet access to all boaters, which is also available by subscription to non-boaters.
