This is a lovely, uncrowded and rare sand beach just five minutes within Crawford Bay itself.
The wide, shallow beach boasts the warmest water on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake and the wide open south-facing beach also offers long days of sunshine! The nearby Crawford Bay Wetlands also offer some nice trails to explore for the more adventurous.
Access to the beach is just off the south side of Hwy 3-A after the Crawford Creek bridge, along a dirt road that follows the creek. Note that currently there are no services or amenities here.
