Steep Rock Beach is a pebble beach known for its amazing limestone cliff formations, the erosion of which has created tons of private beaches and caves.
Located in Manitoba, the public beach area can be found in Steep Rock Beach Park and has everything you need, including picnic tables, showers, washrooms and firepits.
The beach makes for a great day trip from Winnipeg, which is about two hours and 30 minutes away.
The water is a stunning blue-green colour that appears almost milky at times.
While you're there, you may be able to spot crocuses, which are known to grow in the area.
There are tons of things to do at the park, like fishing, canoeing and camping, and a cafe where you can grab a bite.
If you feel like seeing more of Manitoba's incredible blue lakes, you can visit Little Limestone Lake, which is just under three hours away.
The lake is naturally colour-changing, with a gorgeous aqua hue that looks like it belongs in the Maldives, and is Canada's largest marl lake.
