Sakinaw Lake


Sakinaw is one of the largest lakes on the Sunshine Coast, with many vacation cabins situated around the shoreline.

It is equipped with a boat launch and a limited amount of 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. Sakinaw Lake provides important wildlife habitat and sensitive ecosystems. Visitors are asked to be particularly mindful of how they recreate with respect to the natural environment, and also to the local community by respecting private property.

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.
