Christina Lake, Beaches & Swimming

Christina Lake is one of my favourite sites in all of British Columbia. Maybe it's because I'm from the north and have not become accustomed to our freezing lakes, but the warmth and natural beauty of Christina Lake gets me every time.
Christina Lake is known as the warmest lake in Canada, in probably one of the warmest locations. When my family vacationed there temperatures reached a high of 45 degrees Celcius. Strange things started happening when it got that hot, like our watermelon fermenting and pop cans exploding. But the refreshingness of the lake made it all worth it. The south beach is split up into little sections by trees creating privacy between beach dwellers and shade on the sand. The lake is there, clear and blue, with the perfect temperature to cool you off from the hot weather.
It's the perfect destination for a relaxing setting and amazing weather.
