Vernon has the luxury of two marquee lakes to enjoy and we recommend spending your days at one of these beaches that typically stay a secret amongst the locals.
Vineyards & orchards surrounds this expansive, scenic lake, a popular spot for boating & swimming. These 3 beaches are within walking distance of Vita (just across the road in fact).
This stunning lake contains limestone deposits left behind by receding glaciers. When the lake cools down, the limestone crystals vanish, and so does the green-blue hue. Kalamalka Lake takes its name from two different Indigenous words, the Shuswap word for water and the Okanagan word for soothing or healing.
