Nestled just behind the Interpetive Center you are literally a minutes walk from restaurants, convenience store, library, interpretive center, playground and of course the famous 2km sandy beach that is Providence Bay.
Our cottage is located in beautiful Providence Bay, Ontario on Manitoulin Island. Manitoulin Island is the largest fresh water island in the world with a rich aboriginal history of dating back as far as 10,000 BC. Providence Bay is a delightful village community situated on Lake Huron on the south shore of the island in Georgian Bay. It is easily accessible from Sudbury (less than 2 hours away) or from the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry & South Bay Mouth and the Ferry Terminal is only 25 minutes away.)
Providence Bay is renowned for the best sandy beach on the island, with an extensive boardwalk and a children’s play area. (not to mention a welcomed lack of mosquitoes and black flies)
Providence Bay is a unique to most areas in Northern Ontario in that there are virtually no black flies and almost no mosquitoes throughout most of the year. The annual Providence Bay Fair in August attracts thousands of visitors to the area. The parade snakes through the town to the delight of the gathering crowds.The Fair is held on the third weekend of August each year. Providence Bay also boasts fantastic cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
Another plus: it’s only 25 minutes from the ferry at South Baymouth!
