Providence Bay Boardwalk

Spanning the Mindemoya River and running for a considerable length of the Providence Bay Beach crossing dunes with elevated platforms, this wheelchair-accessible boardwalk is worth a stroll.

An amazing 2 km long sand beach on the crystal clear waters of the Lake Huron coast that's open to the public and never crowded. Located on the south shore of Manitoulin Island, the beach at Providence Bay is said to be the best in Northern Ontario. Great little places to eat, shop, play and stay within walking distance of the surf.

Leisurely stroll along the boardwalk or fish for salmon in the waters of Lake Huron. Families will enjoy the picturesque sunsets and the fireworks on Canada Day from the many different viewing platforms located on the boardwalk.

Leashed dogs are permitted on the boardwalk and designated section of the beach at the southeast end across from Providence Bay Tent and Trailer Park and designated dog area is identified with signage.

Out of consideration to others and in accordance with By-Law 2021-07 no off leash dogs anywhere at the beach or boardwalk.  A fine of $200.00 may be issued for non-compliance. Please pick up your dog’s waste.
