White sand softly sliding between your toes sends shivers up your back. Probably one of the best beaches you'll ever see. In the on season you may want to visit one of Manitoulin's other beaches, but post labour day it morphs into a whole new place. thousands of monarch cocoons hang under the rail of the boardwalk during the summer and salmon can be found spawning in the creeks. Manitoulin is the largest fresh water island in the world, I believe, and Providence Bay is its largest beach. If you catch the ferry on your way to the north Shore for the fall colours, it's definitely worth the detour. I'd do guerrilla camping at the bridge, but there is a tent and trailer nearby.
