Municipality of Central Manitoulin - Providence Bay

“With deep roots, the sky is our only limit”

Explore the villages of Providence Bay, Mindemoya, Spring Bay, Sandfield and Big Lake, home to beautiful beaches and lakes. Tourist services include accommodations, restaurants, LCBO, pharmacy and grocery store. High speed internet and cellular service is available in most areas. Boat launches are located at: 570 Dial Road at Windfall Lake, 25 Hutchinson Road at Manitou Lake, northwest end of Big Lake, Perivale Road West at Kagawong Lake, and Ketchankookum Trail at Mindemoya Lake. A marina is located at Providence Bay.

Providence Bay has Manitoulin’s longest sand beach and beach boardwalk that is also wheelchair accessible. Its forested dunes are fragile formations that can easily be damaged by erosion so visitors should not trample vegetation beside the boardwalk. The Mindemoya River enters the bay beside the pavilion where huge salmon and trout swim upstream to spawn every autumn.

The Harbour Centre contains washrooms, a snack concession and picnic tables. The Discovery Centre features interactive displays on local history, culture and environment, as well as live animal exhibits. Historical artifacts are also on display. An accessible playground and fitness equipment stations complement the beach. Providence Bay Marina provides full services at the southeast end of the beach. See The Providence Bay Marina (marina) on Facebook or phone: 705-377-7225.
