Lake life is the best life in Manitoba

Beaches & Boating

Embrace lake life in Manitoba.

When summer hits, Manitobans head to the lake – any lake! Enter cottage country and spend time on the water swimming, boating and paddling. Manitoba lake life is life.

Savour sunny days on the water

From meteor-formed and glacial-fed lakes to the expansive shores of Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba – there are thousands of lakes to discover in Manitoba.

Swim beneath wide open skies and dig your toes into the soft sand of Grand Beach Provincial Park, or explore the other side of Lake Winnipeg at the beachy towns of Gimli and Winnipeg Beach. One of the best ways to explore unknown waters is to embark on a boat tour with an experienced guide.

Always be water safe, know your swimming abilities and wear a personal flotation device when paddling or boating.

A Day at the Beach

Gimli is a favourite day trip for Winnipeggers - only an hour north of the city - visitors come for its beaches in summer and ice fishing in winter. But along the way, they are touched by a little elfin magic, as Gimli’s Nordic roots take hold.

More Info

The summer town of West Hawk is known for its amazing trails, crystal-clear waters (formed by a meteor!) and its high energy, lake-life vibes.
