With a soft sand beach and boat rentals, this prairie destination is well-maintained and an absolute blast to visit.

Here, not only can you lounge on the shoreline, build sandcastles or read a book, you can also rent a boat, go waterskiing, or grab a bite to eat at their restaurant.

Still not convinced? Shaw’s Point also holds movie nights, markets and cabins for those who can’t bare to camp in a tent or RV, so pack your bags and check it out.

Those interested, can head to their website and book their spot now for as little as $49 a night! If instead, you’d like to just spend the day, it’ll cost you just $18.

There’s really nothing like it anywhere in the province and heck, maybe we’ll see you out there. Life’s a beach!
