West Kelowna Hotel's Best Places to Swim in the Okanagan
Summer is about to heat up as temperatures reach above 30°C! While air-conditioned West Kelowna hotels provide a much-needed break from the heat, our region's calming waters are also a welcome sight. Cool off by swimming, sliding, and floating at some of these best places to swim in the Okanagan.
Water, Water Everywhere
Home to more than 50 freshwater lakes, the largest of which is Okanagan Lake, visit some of these popular beaches and quieter swimming areas a short distance away from our Okanagan Lake hotel:
- Kalamoir Beach
- Gellatly Dog Beach at Gellatly Bay Park
- Willow Beach
- Pebble Beach
- Swim Bay (in Peachland)
- Hot Sands Beach (in downtown Kelowna)
- Sun-Oka Beach (Summerland)
Slip, Slide, and Away
For outdoor fun, jump in at one of the three Splash BC parks located at Okanagan Lake beaches in Kelowna, Peachland, and Penticton. Slide, climb, and jump all day long on these lifeguard-attended, water-bound inflatable bouncers.
You can also make a splash 60 km drive north to Vernon where you'll find Atlantis Waterslides. Featuring a variety of waterslides, including an exhilarating tube ride, and smaller slides for toddlers. Get there early to claim an umbrella-covered picnic table, or rent a cabana for the day.
Twisting By the Pool
