Wake up to paradise in your beautiful new Kelowna waterfront home. Living on Okanagan Lake is a year-round dream come true.
Okanagan Lake is one of the natural treasures of the Okanagan Valley. Running 135 km along the centre of the Valley, it provides a stunning focal point for most of the region’s communities. In Kelowna, gorgeous beaches and meandering boardwalks, clear, temperate water, and countless recreational opportunities help to make the lakefront the heart of the city.
Kelowna’s waterfront boasts a wide variety of lakefront real estate, beaches, paths and boardwalks, boat docks, and restaurant patios. For those who call Kelowna home, enjoying the waterfront is more than just a treat, it’s a way of life.
Enjoy the unsurpassed beauty of living on the shores of Okanagan Lake. A waterfront home is the ultimate way to experience the Kelowna lifestyle. The most prestigious addresses in Kelowna and the Okanagan lie along the lake, providing homeowners incredible views and the opportunity to enjoy the lake from their own backyard.
Okanagan Lake is a big draw for those considering moving to Kelowna. In the summer, being on the water is a wonderful way to spend the day. Multiple docks and boat rental companies can be found along both sides of the lake, including the sleekly designed Kelowna Yacht Club, in the heart of downtown.
Paddle-boarders and kayakers can join the Kelowna Paddle Centre, or take advantage of the many rental companies and easy-access public launches. Kite surfers flock to the bend near Rotary Beach, and parasailing, waterskiing, and jet-skiing are also popular activities. Serious athletes compete in several long-format swim races across the water each summer. Recently, private companies have set up floating recreation centres for families, as well.
Several parks and beaches dot the shores of Okanagan Lake. From Vernon to Penticton, there are accessible grass parks, pebble beaches and sandy shores. From any of these beaches you can enjoy the water on a paddleboard or kayak, go for a swim, or play beach volleyball. Kelowna’s furriest residents escape from the summer heat at the dog-friendly Cedar Creek Park.
The beautiful lakefront bike path in Kelowna is perfect for a two-wheeled cruise. Families love the picnic areas, quirky playgrounds, and fun rental equipment found on some of the larger beaches.

Dining lakeside offers views as delicious as the food. The professionals at Jane Hoffman Realty always recommends taking in a lakeside meal at Smack Dab or the Hotel Eldorado in the picturesque Mission neighbourhood, and Cactus Club or the Kelowna Yacht Club, on the beautiful downtown boardwalk.
