BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL & RICH IN HISTORY
Famous for it's gorgeous tropical green waters, which change throughout the year, Kalamalka Lake is situated just south of Vernon, British Columbia - a renowned Canadian tourist destination.
People come from all over the world to experience the beauty of the Okanagan Valley and Kalamalka Lake, or "Kal Lake" as it's known to the locals. It is one of the favorite gems of this popular summer vacation spot - and for good reason.
Aside from how breathtaking it's turquoise green waters are, it also has plenty of exquisite beaches such as Kal Beach & Cosens Bay Beach. Many of the beaches are easily accessible with public washrooms and surrounding parks. With numerous boat launches, it's also a favorite for boaters and water sport enthusiasts.
SO MUCH TO DO & SO MUCH TO SEE
Kal Lake, from a geological stand-point, is considered a glacial lake but don't let that fool you. During the summer months, the average temperature of the water ranges anywhere between 22°C - 27°C. The surrounding region is known for it's hot and dry summers with typically little to no wind and hardly a cloud in the sky. That, combined with the perfect water temperature, makes Kal Lake an ideal place for both locals and tourists to catch a break from the heat.
Aside from Kal Beach, there are numerous other beaches on the lake that are equally as beautiful - maybe even more so, depending on who you ask. South of Kal Beach, on the eastern shore out toward Rattlesnake Point, there is Jade Bay & Juniper Bay with 3 large beaches, picnic tables and trails. Along the west shore, just off Highway 97, is Kekuli Bay Beach. At the furthest south end of the lake is the little known yet gorgeous Kaloya Park which has 2 great beaches, picnic tables, a playground as well as washrooms and change room.
From boating, beaching, fishing, hiking the trails of Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park, biking the Okanagan Rail Trail - which follows the entire west shore and ends up Kelowna, to camping on Kal Lake, there really is no end to how much enjoyment you can experience by spending time here.
