Visiting the Okanagan is true bliss. In summer the weather is lovely and warm, vineyards offer not only great wine but sumptuous meals and the atmosphere is that of relaxation. Besides it being a picturesque part of BC with 135km of greatness to view.

We normally have been here in summer, however, this time we came in winter and is still beautiful. We didn’t swim, but, still we saw the beautiful lake. The restaurants for the most part are open.

Lake Okanagan is one of the primary lakes in the Okanagan Thompson region of B.C. There are loads of public beaches that are free to visit and swim in. The water is clean and clear and much warmer than some other regions in Canada.
