Fish Point Nature Reserve is one of the most recommended locations to visit on Pelee Island and is currently one of three protected conservation areas on Pelee Island. Referred to as Fishing Point in the 1800’s, this nature reserve is located on Pelee’s Southern shore and it’s prominent feature is the dynamic sand spit that is constantly shifting and changing shape. Fish point was selected as a nature reserve by the Ontario government for its representation of the natural habitats and landforms which are now protected for educational and research purposes. Most of the unique vegetation and wildlife species, over 500 of which are considered rare, are representative of the Carolinian forest region and have significant biological features that are being preserved on a provincial level. While walking on the sand spit of Fish Point, you truly are standing at the southernmost inhabitable point of Canada!
