The Beach is situated on a sandy peninsula that extends into Lake Winnipeg, while Beaconia lines a sandy island, joined to the mainland by a causeway. Sitting side by side, the beaches are separated by a channel which joins a marshy lagoon to the Lake.
It is actually a Provincial Park. As part of so called 'low maintainance' Park - Provincial Park only offers washrooms and change rooms, and a food concession.
The Beach is still in a near-natural condition, and this is considered a bonus by regular visitors and newcomers alike. It's an excellent family recreational beach, and a favorite spot for windsurfing and picnicing. There are picnic tables, fire pits, and drinking water taps distributed throughout the area.
Many people come out just to watch the spectacular sunsets.
A large part of this property along the beach was sold to the Provincial Government in 1959. The Government of Manitoba used the property to create the Provincial Park
