3 Nice Beaches To Visit In Kelowna To Avoid The Crowds
Tourist season is among us, and now that the beaches have opened back up for the season, we can expect big, big crowds at beaches like Boyce-Gyro and Kelowna City Park. For a quieter experience in the Okanagan, here are 3 more “private” beaches to visit over the summer.
Okay, okay. Most locals know about Paul’s Tomb accessed by the most popular hiking trail of all, Knox Mountain. But, with a little bit of exercise, you can hit up a relatively quiet (and dog friendly!) beach right here in Kelowna. The Lake Okanagan and mountain sights are gorgeous and the water will feel extra refreshing after all the work you put in to get there.
Kalamoir Regional Park
Typically, to find more peaceful beach experiences in the Okanagan, you may need to venture out of Kelowna proper. Just a short drive away to West Kelowna, is Kalamoir Regional Park. This beach is small, but quiet. It is a little rocky, but if you’re looking to dive into a good book, enjoy the beauty of your surroundings, and take the occasional dip, Kalamoir is a great choice. Also, you’ll find trails at this park, so if you want to do a little hiking and a little beaching, you can do both!
Again, in West Kelowna on the way to Bear Creek Regional, there’s a hidden turn off to a magical place called Raymer Bay. This beach is a definite favorite among Westbank locals, and for good reason. Sand, grass, a picnic shelter, and a playground can all be found at this glorious West Kelowna beach. The water is nice, there are boats docked just past the buoys, and the sights are absolutely stunning. When trying to find a great beach in Kelowna or West Kelowna, make sure to pay Raymer Bay a visit.
Living in the Okanagan, we certainly aren’t lacking nice beaches to lay our towels on, among many other great local activities to do in Kelowna! I love where I live and I want you to love it too. Let me help you find homes for sale where it’s easy to hit up the beach every day of the summer if you want to. Get in touch today to get started.
