Beaches & Lakes in BC Canada

The Pacific Ocean laps the length of the British Columbia, and there are miles of coast to explore for beachcombing, swimming, or just relaxing.

Beaches also line the warm-water lakes of BC’s interior, including Okanagan and Shuswap Lakesperfect for a mid-summer swim. In the mountain valleys, explore a colourful mosaic of emerald and aqua glacier-fed lakes. Go remote in Haida Gwaii to find a beach all to yourself, or put down a blanket with local families at Okanagan lakeside retreats. Vancouver’s urban beaches are ideal for picnics, volleyball games, and strolls with a view of the city.
