Beaches

Manitoba Provincial Parks have an abundance of beautiful beaches. Spend time at these popular spots and savour a sunny summer tradition.

Blue Flag

The Blue Flag designation is a highly respected eco-label that symbolizes clean and well-managed beaches. The standards ensure the beach is protected and that public use will not harm its ecosystem. 33 criteria related to water quality, environmental education, environmental management, safety and services must be met annually to secure the designation from an international jury in Europe. The Blue Flag shows that staff are upholding beach management and operations to some of the highest standards in the world.


Grand Beach

Winnipeg Beach


The Internationally recognized "Blue Flag" has flown at Grand Beach (West Beach) since 2012 and at Winnipeg Beach since 2014.
