Beach weather is here and now's the time to take advantage of the sunshine! We all love heading out to the water to cool off, so popular beaches close to the city fill up fast. Get away from the crowds and enjoy yourself at one of these amazing secret swim spots.

Check out some cliff jumping, kayaking, river tubing, waterfalls, white sand, saltwater and even Caribbean-coloured water, all in Manitoba! So get roadtrip ready and head out to one of these nine bucketlist secret swimming spots ASAP.

Steep Rock

This Caribbean-style beach will make you feel like you’re on an island vacay! The palm trees definitely make it just that much more awesome.

Little Limestone Lake

That other Caribbean-vibes lake you probably keep seeing photos of and wondering, "How is this even in Manitoba!?" I mean, come on, just imagine all the incredible IG pics you can snap here.

Patricia Beach

One of Manitoba's only nude beaches! The white, sandy beach is perfect for your bare bottom.

Hudson Bay Beach

The only salt-water beach you can find in Manitoba. It’s the closest to the ocean that we’ll get. It even has whale-watching!

Snow Lake

It’s kind of like British Columbia right in our own backyard! Snow Lake also has beautiful Wekusko Falls. Don't jump off the bridge to go swimming though.

Bloodvien River

This river is great for rafting, if you're feeling adventurous! So, if you're more the active, outdoorsy type, then head here for a day in the sun.

Kwasitchewan Falls

Not only is this the biggest waterfall in Manitoba, but it's also definitely a hiker's dream. Go burn some serious calories before cooling off!

Brokenhead River

Grab a tube and some friends and float down the river! You can get to it near Beausejour and have a relaxing getaway.


Usually Asessippi is known for skiing, but in the summer, it turns into a refreshing oasis! You can get dropped off and float down the shell river.
