Kal Beach, located just minutes south of Vernon, British Columbia, is the most popular beach on Kalamalka Lake and for good reason. The 300 meter long beach has pristine soft sand, plenty of shade from the large poplars, picnic tables and plenty of space for the kids to play or to sprawl out and sunbathe. It is easily accessible as Kal Lake Road runs right along its northern edge. There is plenty of free parking, a concession as well as public washrooms and change rooms.
Kal Beach has a stunning south facing view that looks right down the center of the lake toward Kelowna allowing you to almost see the lake from end to end.
Aside from the popular concession stand, on the west end of the beach there is Kalamalka Lake General Store and on the east end of the beach is Alexander's Beach Pub which has a huge patio overlooking the lake and beach.
The beach is home to the famous Kalamalka Lake Rotary Pier which is a popular spot for fishing and sun bathing among both locals and tourists.
