Nakusp, this is where its at. Isolated in the west kootenays, Nakusp is a breath taking get-away. Hot springs, Hiking, History, and great camping. Every service you need is within walking distance, it's a small, quiet and beautiful town filled with friendly people.
The public beach great place to relax, and is perfect to just lay back and absorb the sun. Nakusp's beach is small but it seems as if you have endless space around you compared to some crowded beaches. The sand here is soft and the water warm. Many are surprised by the little amount of boats on the water, its so peaceful and calm! In the water floats a raft with a small waterslide, which the kids love to play on. And if the sun gets too hot for you, at the top of the beach is a soft grass area under the shade of trees. From there you can still see the water, so its a great spot to read a book on the grass, and still be able to see your kids playing in the water.
Hope you can make it next summer!
