This site is dedicated to the beach resorts along the eastern shore of Lake Winnipeg.
Canada's Southern Lake Winnipeg Beaches (Eastern Beaches) consist of Patricia Beach Provincial Park, Beaconia, Grand Marais and Grand Beach Provincial Park.
North Lake Winnipeg Beaches include Lester Beach, Belair, Hillside Beach, Victoria Beach, Albert Beach and Traverse Bay so any Lake Winnipeg Beaches you choose will be a good way to have holidays.
Lake Winnipeg Beaches are more like Manitoba's playground. Located 76 kilometers north of Winnipeg. For over 50 years Lake Winnipeg Beaches have been host to thousands of summer visitors who enjoyed the boardwalk roller coaster and dance hall and other attractions.
Today the beaches of Lake Winnipeg are reborn and very friendly, offering great food and places to hang out in. Manitoba summers may be short, but they offer lots o sunshine. With temperatures around 30° C the recreational value of the beaches is comparable to those of the Caribbean
North End of Hwy 59, one of Canada's most popular areas
At the northernmost end of Highway 59 lie a string of friendly vacation communities with clean, quiet beaches, making this one of Canada`s most popular areas to play and relax. Here you have access to a multitude of year-round pleasures - tee-off on one of multiple golf courses in the area, take a refreshing swim in the lake, go bird watching, captain a sailboat, fish for walleye, windsurf the waves, play beach volleyball or simply lay back and soak up the sun on one of the many beaches in the area - in summer. During the winter, there is curling, skating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, bake sales and art and craft shows when the activity level heats up with indoor and outdoor fun.
Southern Lake Winnipeg Beaches Canada
Spend a couple of days on the spectacular white sands of Patricia and Grand Beaches, considered among the finest beaches in North America. At Patricia Beach, you can enjoy a quiet day taking in the sun, taking a dip, or taking a stroll on one of the prettiest stretches of beach you'll find anywhere. This beach is also renowned for its large, natural marsh area, which is the home to an amazing variety of waterfowl and wildlife species.
The legendary winds of Lake Winnipeg may have struck fear into many a lake-going mariner, but to speed-loving windsurfers in the Lake's southern basin, the breezes are a blessing. Tie down your board and head to any of the Lake's southern beaches, from Gimli in the northwest to Victoria in the northeast. (Be sure to surf Grand Beach on your way 'round!) Early spring and late fall are the windiest seasons on Winnipeg, but they are also downright chilly: you will need a dry suit, a hood, boots and gloves.
Kiteboarding as soon as the ice is off
Kite-boarding or kite-surfing is one of the newest recreational attractions in the Beaches Area of Lake Winnipeg. It is a combination of surfing and flying your kite. This sport is perfect for Manitoba's open waters and frequent winds.
Though a few die hard kite-boarders will start right in the spring, as soon as the ice is off the lake(some might not even wait that long), summers are great with the famous Manitoba warm winds and waters.
The hard core Kiters now meet at the Sandbar, as the owner Tyler is one of the province's hard core riders, and his family has been involved in all aspects of sailing in this province for over 40 years. The Sandbar has a live weather station to let every one know where the best places to ride are. After a good hard day of riding they usually go to Tyler's house for beers & BBQ, and great fires. He also allows Kiters to camp there, at no cost.
In the eyes of Manitoba's Kiters Tyler does a lot to promote the sport of Kite Boarding and promotes and takes care of all fellow kiters. He also takes care to ensure all rules are followed to allow great growth to the Kiting sport within the Grand Beach Region.
