"Penticton...Peaches and beaches" Penticton by Darby2

Penticton Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 43 photos

Penticton lies in the sunny Okanagan Valley at the south end of Okanagan Lake and the north end of Skaha Lake. It has some great sandy beaches on both sides of town. The Okanagan River that joins the two lakes is also a great place for a lazy float down the river in an inner tube, canoe, air mattress or whatever flotation device you can find. There were hundreds of folks doing this on the day Gillian and I drove through here.
