Hot Sands Beach


A cheeky location for cool kids, festivals, families and vagabonds, this long, sandy expanse of lakefront is Kelowna’s signature tourist attraction. A short walk to local pubs, patios and shops, this beach is meant for those who like to play hard in the city.  Within earshot of Parks Alive Stage, there’s an urban vibe here and it’s playing to the tune of its own drummer.

Local venders and artisans often set up shop with tent malls popping up along the promenade. Buskers and slackliners perform beachside, while aquatic gymnasts entertain their land-locked audience. Volleyball and basketball courts, playgrounds, water and skate parks frame the picturesque marina complete with boardwalks, and yes – pianos.

Valley Vagabonds Inside Tip

The parking at this downtown beach fills quickly so you’ll want to claim your stall and piece of sandy beach early in the day.
