Mindemoya is centrally located on the Island and lends itself well with access to many of Manitoulin's wonderful cycling routes. Mindemoya L. is one of the warmest lakes to swim in, as it is relatively shallow and features the legendary Treasure Island. Mindemoya has a hospital and you will find all amenities close by.
