Beaches & Swimming
Kids swimming (Picture BC photo)
Okanagan beaches were named the #2 "Best Beaches in Canada" in TripAdvisor's 2011 Readers Choice Awards.
The Okanagan Valley is the warmest and driest part of BC, with pockets of semi-arid desert as well as Canada's only true desert. It also contains an enormous number of lakes, most of which are warm and wonderful swimming destinations.
Beach and water sports of every description are played here and, with gorgeous lake, orchard and mountain views everywhere you look, picnicking is practically mandatory.
For family fun close to lots of conveniences and amenities, visit the city beaches in Kelowna, Penticton and Osoyoos. If you prefer to leave the city behind, opt for a provincial park such as Haynes Point or Shuswap Lake. The best time for sunning and swimming in this region is from June through September.

Malakwa, British Columbia
Suites and campground adjacent to spectacular waterfalls & 2 km riverfront. Overpass, boardwalks, tame mountain wilderness give access to the high mountain patio and a 73 m suspension bridge above raging Crazy Creek. The bridge and platforms get you directly in front of the falls - feel the mist and hear the roar. This all-season family oriented destination is an ideal stop as you travel through the Rockies; between Vancouver & Calgary. It is an activity hub in the heart of Eagle Pass Nature Park; world-famous sledding, ATVing, heli-hiking and catskiing. Relax at the hot pools facility daily (large hot pools; cold plunge).
