About Victoria Beach, Manitoba
The Rural Municipality of Victoria Beach, Manitoba, rests right on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, only 62 miles from Manitoba's capital city of Winnipeg.
Vacationing in Victoria Beach
The Beach is ideal for vacationers who want to relax and get away from city life. To that end, there are no tourist attractions, campgrounds or picnic areas, and limited public traffic and commercialization. The local cottagers who run the community monitor all of this.
There's much to do on the beach, including swimming, golfing, tennis, baseball, sailing, and riding a keel boat or catamaran, as well as skating, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and curling in the winter. If you enjoy sailing in particular, be sure to pay the yacht club a visit - take a pleasure sail or compete with others on Winnipeg Lake.
There are a lot of wonderful accommodations in the area. You can stay at a cottage, hotel, bed and breakfast or a rustic cabin.
