“A jewel in the Canadian Crown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Some of the best beaches, warm, shallow water for children, and great waves when there's a wind. Unfortunately, by the middle or end of summer, there is a tendency for algae blooms which limit the swimming. We all hope and pray that the U.S. and Canada will continue their efforts to fix this problem, as the mighty Red River drains into this lake.

“Winnipeg Beach, Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2010

On the West edge of the lake lies the town of Winnipeg Beach.

Beaches, Boardwalks, and Bandstand, this beach has all sorts of fun events such as great fishing, boating, seadooing, golfing etc.


I have to admit that the beach on the West side of Lake Winnipeg has a few more rocks than the sandy beach on the East, however I found that to be part of the charm of visiting that beach.
