There are several beautiful beaches near our hotel—the biggest, Okanagan Lake, is just a block from the hotel and was voted one of Canada’s best beaches on TripAdvisor. At 35 km long and between 4 and 5 km wide, there’s plenty of room to sprawl out and take a dip. Also check out Skaha Lake and Sunoka Beach.
This area is well known for its wine—as attested by the over 100 wineries in the Okanagan Valley. Take a tour of a few and raise a glass!
The Bench – Artisan Food Market
This delectable restaurant and store was started by two sisters. It’s a fantastic place for breakfast or lunch—or just to pick up a great bottle of Okanagan wine to go.
With over 50 golf courses to choose from in the area, you’re sure to find one that fits you to a tee—whether you’re looking for an easygoing game or championship course.
