Patricia - Beach Manitoba Canada
Pristine, secluded, stunningly beautiful- the beaches of Patricia and Beaconia, at the south end of Lake Winnipeg, have been left in a near-natural and unspoiled state. For families seeking nothing more than sun and sand, windsurfers seeking elbow room, and nature lovers seeking a tranquil refuge, the beaches offer a peaceful alternative to the Grand Beach bustle.
Patricia 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.
Patricia Beach is actually a Provincial Park. As part of so called 'low maintainance' Park Patricia Beach 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.
