Meldrum Bay Manitoulin's end of the Rainbow
Meldrum Bay, at the west end of Hwy 540, is literally at land’s end with the enchanting atmosphere of being at the end of a rainbow. The village has services of a store, camping, cottages and inn lodging. Boat docks and a break wall provide improved shelter for boats while the new harbour centre has a lounge, refreshments, showers and laundry facilities. The bay contains shipwrecks that beg to be explored while salmon lurk in the bay just waiting for an angler’s lure. The Net Shed Museum exhibits artifacts daily during summer.
At the remote western tip of the island stands the historic Mississagi Lighthouse Heritage Park. Its austere, surrounding landscape is fascinating to explore. Deep rock crevices and grottos indent the shoreline, and limestone ledges are ideal for swimming and diving. The old foghorn station, lighthouse and originally furnished light keeper’s home open for tours as a museum during summer only.
