Manitou Beach is a beautiful recreational place but it can be difficult to know when to go. This post will show you the best times to visit Manitou Beach so that you can plan your trip accordingly and have the most fun while you’re there.
Manitou Beach is located on the shores of Little Manitou Lake and is part of the resort village of Manitou Beach in Saskatchewan.
The village is a popular fishing, swimming and boating spot for residents and visitors alike.
With scenic views of the lake, it’s a popular destination for short-term rental properties and a great option during recreational seasons. This post breaks down the ideal times to visit.
If you’re looking to rent a place on Manitou Beach, Prowess offer’s Lakefront Cottage and Luxury Loft Cottage it’s best to do so during the summer months. There are still benefits to visiting at other times of year. In fact, there are pros and cons of visiting in all four seasons!
As with any resort area that caters to tourists, crowds can be an issue when it comes time for you to relax with your family or friends during your stay. If you prefer quieter beaches on which you can walk barefoot without worrying about stepping on glass and other trash, visiting Manitou Beach outside of peak season might be your best option. On the other hand, if you want access (and discounts) at local restaurants and attractions during high season (June through September), booking your trip for then will ensure that everything is open when it matters most–during summertime!

The summer season is the most popular time to visit Manitou Beach. This isn’t surprising considering it’s a wonderful spot to enjoy camping and water sports like swimming, sailing, boating, tubing and fishing.
However, if you want to avoid the big crowds, you can choose to book your short-term rental property in advance or during one of these other perfect times to visit:
Spring (March 1st through May 31st) – The weather is ideal for a beach vacation and prices are at their lowest. Temperatures range from 70°F to 80°F, making it possible to enjoy all of Manitou Beach’s outdoor activities without having to worry about sunburns or chills. Plus, this season makes it easier on your wallet since there are fewer people staying at local hotels and restaurants means lower costs for food and drinks!
You’ll have more opportunities to hike and explore different parts of the lake without having to worry about large crowds or blocked off areas due to holiday activities. You can also participate in fun activities before everything gets booked up for the summer!
You can enjoy the lake in all its glory. The weather is warm enough for swimming, but not too hot. There are fewer people around and there isn’t as much noise from boats or jet skis.
The spring season also brings with it beautiful scenery and wildlife, so if you want to get out on the trails for some hiking or biking, now’s the time! Hiking is an excellent way to explore different parts of the lake without having crowds blocking off areas due to holidays or summer activities.
Springtime marks many events like The Great Manitou Beach Cleanup Day (always held on Earth Day), Spring Festivals & Events (usually held during Memorial Weekend), as well as other fun activities like paddleboarding lessons – so make sure not miss out!
Fall (September 15th through November 15th) – The fall season provides some of the best views for taking photographs because the sunsets have just enough time before it sets behind the mountains that surround Manitou Beach. If you’re looking for something more low-key than summertime crowds but still want access to most activities like swimming/surfing lessons then this time period might be perfect for you!
It’s still warm enough for swimming (the temperature at Little Manitou Lake remains warm well into October) and there are lots of opportunities for hiking among all of the colourful leaves falling from trees in Saskatchewan.
Winter – (January 1st through February 28th) – Winter is also great because most of the beachgoers are gone and there will be plenty of space for you to enjoy yourself without being bothered by people constantly asking if they can share your umbrella or take pictures of you in your bathing suit (which happens all too often during peak season).
But if you’re not comfortable with the cold, then winter is not for you. The water can be too cold for swimming, and it can be hard to find a spot on the beach that isn’t covered in snow. For people who aren’t used to being outside in chilly temperatures during this time of year, it might feel like torture.
To sum it up, Manitou Beach is a great destination for any time of year. If you’re looking for a place with less crowds and more opportunities to explore nature, then spring and fall are perfect times to visit. Or if you prefer to have an intimate gathering with your loved ones during Christmas eve along the beach then winter it is! However, if you prefer being surrounded by other people or if you need something to do besides hiking or fishing (maybe your favorite sport isn’t available during the winter months?), then summer offers lots of fun things like swimming, boating and tubing!
