Sakinaw Lake

Sakinaw is one of the largest lakes on the Sunshine Coast, and an extremely popular lake for vacation cabins.

It is equipped with a full-scale boat launch and parking for cars with trailers. You can often find an excellent display of water skiing talent cruising the lake. The boat launch is located at the end of Sakinaw Lake Road. This is truly a boater’s paradise lake. Rent some paddling equipment or bring your kayak, canoe, or SUP and explore the endless shoreline. You may even spot some petroglyphs on an ancient rock face, or discover a new jumping rock (please jump carefully!). What makes this lake truly unique is its (literal) connection to the ocean. The lake narrows at one end, connecting it the outside Salish Sea.

A southbound drive of approximately 15 - 20 minutes will find you in Madeira Park where you can stock up on groceries. There are also multiple accommodation options in Pender Harbour if you are in search of a place to rest your head. The community of Egmont is approximately 30 - 40 minutes northbound and offers accommodations and a general store.
