Port Elgin, On, Canada

  • Port Elgin is a community in the Ontario municipality of Saugeen Shores. Close to MacGregor Point Provincial Park and Southampton in Bruce County, the community has several beaches on Lake Huron. The community was named after James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin, a former Governor General of the Province of Canada, in 1873. Originally, the village was named Normanton. In the 1990s, Port Elgin was merged into the town of Saugeen Shores.

    Port Elgin is renowned for its beautiful sunsets. There is a common urban legend in Port Elgin that National Geographic selected the town as having the world's best sunsets. This has since been proven wrong. However, in 2007 CBC Television held a competition to discover the Seven Wonders of Canada. While not being in the top seven, Saugeen Shores and its sunsets were one the finalists.
