Bob-Lo Island is home to Bois Blanc Light House National Historic Site and Whitesands Beach. Located on the southern end of the island, our Historic Site includes the lighthouse constructed by the government of Upper Canada in 1836. Adjacent to the site is Whitesands Beach, a gorgeous stretch of beachfront that residents enjoy all summer long.
Preservation of the environment is a focus on Bob-Lo Island. Assuming an important role in the development of the island are our resident biologists and ecological experts who have meticulously catalogued all of Bob-Lo's diverse tree, plant and animal species, from the fish that spawn in the shallows of the river to the migrating birds that make their nests there... the 100 year old Hickory and Oak trees that have stood the test of time. Experts in the flora and fauna of Essex County, their recommendations on preserving and enhancing all of the island's varied natural habitats have been incorporated into the island's environmental covenants and are reflected in everything from the shoreline-sensitive design of the marina to the indigenous landscaping of the community.
There is no more natural a way of maintaining your health than enjoying the benefits of nature itself.
And fortunately nature is in abundant supply at Bob-Lo. Here you'll find tranquility and true balance in your life, the opportunity to reawaken your senses and revive your spirit. The fresh air alone can do you a world of good whether you're jogging along the shoreline, biking on the paths or waterskiing on the river.
