Manitou Beach is a resort village in Saskatchewan, Canada, located on the shores of Little Manitou Lake, approximately 100 km east of Saskatoon, and 5 km north of the town of Watrous. It is a tourist destination with a Mineral Spa, Danceland dance hall, a 9-hole golf course and a Regional Park campground.

The waters at the beach are known for their high salinity and resulting buoyancy. The salt levels are such that one can even lie back and read a book while floating in suspension.
