A resort village located in the western part of the province, Manitou Beach is located on the shores of Little Maniout Lake, the largest saltwater lake in the Prairies. The lake actually has a mineral density greater than the Dead Sea and is reputed to have legendary therapeutic powers.
Home to Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary, the first and oldest bird sanctuary in North America, Manitou Beach is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. The town hosts weekly farmers’ and flea markets and offers visitors a variety of water activities including canoeing, kayaking, and swimming (or rather, floating). As a four-season holiday destination, the region also caters to hunters, anglers, golfers, and hikers in the summer, and cross-country skiers, skaters, snowshoers, and snowmobilers come winter. Another unique attraction is the Jubilee Drive-In, where locals and visitors alike can view a movie beneath a prairie night sky.
Just over an hour’s drive from Saskatoon, Manitou Beach is a charming lakeside retreat and a popular place to rent a cottage in Saskatchewan.+ More
