In Peachland, every day is beach day. Pull up your lawn chair and relax or grab a paddleboard, kayak or floatie and drift through gentle waves. Swim Bay, Peachland’s main beach, is family friendly, wheelchair accessible, and it is the only life-guarded beach in the Okanagan. You’ll notice the waterfront is mosquito free, and that is thanks the resident bats who Peachlanders recognize as an important part of the community.
If you’re looking for land adventure, conquer the infamous Pincushion Mountain and take a selfie with the Canadian flag at its summit, or take an ATV tour into the back country. Rather explore Peachland from the skies? It is also home to one of Canada’s highest, longest, and fastest ziplines!
For those interested in a leisurely outdoor experience, take a relaxed stroll along the lake through downtown Peachland and visit the wheelchair accessible fishing pier in Heritage Park. You also won’t want to miss Peachland’s waterfall, Hardy Falls, where you can see the salmon spawn in the fall.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, hit up one of Peachland’s legendary restaurants and choose anything from schnitzel to sushi. Later, visit a pub and join the locals for karaoke.
