Victoria Beach (Clubhouse Area), MB
Victoria Beach (Clubhouse Area) Short Term Forecast
Heres your chance to swim in the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world! Water all the way from the Rocky Mountains to Lake Superior and the USA gathers here for recreation and fishing and then whooshes it along the mighty Nelson and Hayes rivers on its way to Hudson Bay. You cannot see the opposite shore from this beach its that big! The white sands reach up into the deep green boreal forest that rings the shores of this summer resort. Clubhouse Beach has a gradual entrance into the water that is especially good for kids but woe betides anyone who attempts to swim when the waves are big because the undertow is extremely dangerous and there are no lifeguards. During periods of prolonged summer heat the lake may spike a coating of green algae that is best to avoid. The beach is behind the community clubhouse which has served summer residents since the resort was developing in 1925. Access for non-residents takes a bit of work In July and August as Victoria Beach becomes a walking and cycling only community. Visitors may park for a fee in the Victoria Beach Parking Lot beside Highway 59 North and walk or bike along Arthur Road approximately 800 m to the beach. Fortunately the walk to this beach takes you past a general store and a great little bakery so picnics are no problem. The beach is unsupervised and serviced by portable washrooms. There are no official picnic areas or municipal facilities but there is a baseball field and tennis courts. There is a nearby golf course and the beach has a marina and yacht club. Victoria Beach was named after Queen Victoria and is home to over 200 permanent residents.
