Vernon BC Area Beaches - Cosens Bay Beach
Roughly 700 metres in length and 20 metres in width, Cosens Bay Beach
is the second best beach in Vernon BC and one of the least known beaches
due to poor access and promotion. Located in Kalamalka
Provincial Park a couple kilometres from the nearest parking spots.
The sand is a natural yellow with some round rocks in the water. Sometimes
there are bears in the area but I've never heard of anyone being hurt
by them. Other wild animals include deer (morning), mountain goats, ducks,
Distance from Downtown Vernon BC:
Located 8 km south of Vernon city centre off Hwy 6.
Pit toilet on the south end of the beach. Bring lots of water to drink
if walking since heat exposure can be an issue during summer time.
Mostly visit this long beach by boat, however some walk the 2-3 kms from
Jade Bay Parking lot (one of the most beautiful views in the world ...
I'm not exaggerating this fact) or walk from the Cosens Bay Parking to
the east of Cosens Bay on a nice developed path. In the morning look for
deer or mountain goats.
