Explore the villages of Providence Bay, Mindemoya, Spring Bay, Sandfield and Big Lake, home to beautiful beaches and lakes.

A marina is located at Providence Bay.
Manitoulin Cenotaph Park honours local military servicemen and women and merchant marine seamen who lost their lives in the World Wars. The park also provides washrooms and a shady picnic area. Follow Monument Road north to a lovely beach on the west shore of Mindemoya Lake before encountering Mindemoya Cave. When the cave was first discovered, human skeletons were found inside where a native camp scene is now depicted. From Spring Bay, Perivale Road hugs the shoreline of Kagawong Lake for superb views. Rustic cedar rail fences are common along this route and flocks of magnificent Sandhill Cranes, North America’s second tallest bird, are a common sight in meadows. The Sand Road, north of Providence Bay, runs through Grimesthorpe to Dominion Bay past hilly, ancient sand dunes. The area is home to several fine art galleries and artisan studios that are situated in idyllic landscapes overlooking Manitoulin’s shorelines.
