Did you know that there are NINE beaches in the Sicamous area? Some of these hidden gems are accessible by car and others are perfect destinations for a day on the lake. Pack your beach essentials and get exploring!

  1. Sicamous Beach Park

    • Sicamous Beach Park is located right in town and offers a beautiful sandy beach with a designated swim area and floating dock. The playground equipment is recently updated and there is a splash water park for the kids! The Beach Park offers TWO refreshed beach volleyball courts, picnic tables and benches. The concession opened in 2022 and offers cold drinks and snacks!
    • The Sicamous Beach Park is accessible via Finlayson Street or Silver Sands Road. There is parking available in both places, but (local secret) the lot on Silver Sands Road is often quieter.
  2. Flocky's Beach

    • Previously known as Two Mile Beach, this quite and serene area was recently re-named in memory of NHLer Rob Flockhart, who grew up in Sicamous. While Flocky's Beach has fewer amenities than the Sicamous Beach Park, it offers a beautiful and peaceful white-sand spot on Mara Lake. There is a picnic table and small parking lot at Flocky's Beach.
    • Enjoy amazing sunsets, a lighthouse and views of Mara Hills Golf Course!
    • Flocky's Beach is located at the end of Tecumseh Road.
