Hecla Island's white-sand beaches

Between Hecla Oasis Resort and Lake Winnipeg lies a silicon-soft white sandy beach – not what most people expect in Manitoba. It is a short and pleasant walk across the hotel’s lawn to this bench. We took cocktails…

Beaches on the island range from sand to pebbles. Cliffs line the western coast, offering fabulous views across the lake.
