Okanagan Beach Penticton BC

Best Beaches In The Okanagan

Okanagan beach, on Okanagan Lake in Penticton BC, is one of our favorite beaches and is right across the street from cozy local motels, some great restaurants, a playground, waterpark, the city's main downtown parks, and some cool family friendly attractions.

The beach is backed with big shady trees.
So, you can laze in shade, or in the sun, which ever your preference.

The sand is soft and cool.

The beach is about a mile long.

It runs along Lakeshore Drive from the SS Sicamous sternwheeler (a historical site) and Riverside park, to the Penticton Lakeside Resort & Casino on the east side of Lake Okanagan.

There are slides for the little ones.

And there's floating docks for the bigger kids to swim out to. But, our beaches do not have lifeguards.

Within walking distance of the beach, you'll find a new shopping plaza that has local fresh fruit and vegetable market, Quality Greens, a meat shop for fresh meats (T-Bones), and you can get basically everything you need to prepare meals.

Okanagan beach is backed by cozy Penticton motels all along Lakeshore Drive, and some great restaurants for outdoor summer dining.

It's close to everything including downtown Penticton, and Gryo Park (where many local events happen), and the Penticton River Channel launch site is also a hop skip and jump away.

Lakawana waterpark & playground, ice cream shops, a bike rental shop, Loco Landing Adventure Mini Golf, the Penticton Rose Garden and a skateboard park are all either along the beach or within a blocks walking distance.

The Penticton Lakeside Resort sits alongside the east end of the beach, which is the main resort in the city offering hotel accommodations and a casino.

One of the nicest things about Penticton are the motels along Okanagan beach. They are convenient, cozy, not overly pricy!

Depending on how long you're staying, you can sometimes get a discount for longer bookings. Some motels in Penticton offer monthly rates, and cheaper rates for winter vacations.

Many have inground pools on the motel premisis.

And generally you can find motel suites from twin, to bachelor to one and two bedroom suites with kitchenettes.

There are many other motels in Penticton more centrally located, as well as several motels on the south end of the city near Skaha Beach.

The nice thing about motels, rather than hotels, is that you can save on meals by buying your own groceries, like fresh fruit and vegetables at summer farmers markets and local orchard and fruit stands and eat in rather than always having to eat out. For kids, it's easy to make sure they eat well and stay healthy on vacation.
