Grand Beach is situated on the western shores of Lake Winnipeg—the sixth largest lake in Canada—with cottage rentals scattered along the northern edge of the town of Grand Marais and throughout Grand Beach Provincial Park.
The beach, long considered as one of the best beaches in North America, beckons sunbathers and water sport enthusiasts from around the world. With over three kilometres of white sand beaches, framed by 12-meter high sand dunes, Grand Beach is a popular place to go boating, sailing, swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and windsurfing. Fishing is also a popular activity among both budding and experienced anglers, as potential Grand Beach catches include carp, catfish, perch, walleye, northern pike, and silver bass.
While the beach is the main attraction, Grand Beach offers other natural and outdoor recreations to locals and visitors. In the summer the provincial park offers excellent biking and hiking trails and in winter those same tracks make for great cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. It is also a must to go berry picking and to visit the boardwalk at the beach’s west end, home to fine foods, art shows and artisanal crafts.
Host to a variety of cottage rentals, Grand Beach is a charming lakeside holiday retreat just one hour’s drive north of Winnipeg.+ More
