Welcome to Manitou Beach!

Drinking Water Advisory Recinded July 12, 2016

Welcome to Manitou Beach! On behalf of Council and all residents, I invite you to relax kick back and enjoy the peace that surrounds us.

We are truly a unique community. Unique therapeutic water in our lake, the only one in North America and one of three in the world.

A unique dancehall with a horsehair cushioned dance floor. The vintage uniqueness of a drive-in movie theatre.

Get closer to nature by enjoying a peaceful walk through Wellington Park or hike one of our nature trails. Challenge your skills on our golf course or at mini golf, and bring your boat and sailing skills to enjoy the lake. Soak your cares away by floating in the healing waters of the lake or enjoy the heated mineral pool at the Spa. Pamper yourself with a massage and a manicure. Heal your body and mind with the help of our ‘wholistic health’ community.

Our proud business community provides a wide range of lodging, from hotels and motels to B&Bs and a wonderful campground.

Manitou Beach is a special place, we invite you to enjoy our community on a vacation or by making it your home and we will continue our commitment to keep improving our Village for everyone to enjoy.

Mayor Eric Upshall
