  • Enjoy a walk along the shore or bring a picnic. This is a beautiful place to relax. Summer time means the usual crowds but that does not deter from the enjoyment of nature that is available here.  more »
  • Sylvan has it all. From nice hotels to serene beaches to jet sling and water skiing. It is a place to take kids of all ages and either sun on the beach or enjoy water sports. Whatever level of excitem...  more »
  • The town itself was quaint and clean and well kept. The beach area was skinny but long and the water was clean and refreshing. Loved all the extras you could do on the lake such as seadoo rentals etc....  more »

  • Sylvan Lake has earned its place on the list of Canada's top 20 beaches! Very family-friendly with clean, shallow water with soft, sandy floor. In low-water level times, there's lots of sandy beach to play in. Public washrooms & changerooms right on the beach. Be sure to treat yourself to delicious ice-cream at The Big Moo! Jarvis Bay campground is a terrific place for overnight stays. All the usual comfort amenities!
  • Born & lived on Prince Edward Island most of my life I miss being near the ocean and walking the shoreline.. Sylvan Lake is a well kept from litter with availability of shore lines to walk.. Public showers & bathrooms are always kept clean. Lots of reasonable priced good places to relax and have a bite & a drink.. Pete's on the Beach has become one of our must stop places when we visit the area. It has been my partner's favorite place for a day get away from Edmonton for years and now mine too.. Always have a pleasant & relaxing day there.. People ( business owners, locals & visitors) are very friendly..
  • Where else can you go and ice skate and ice fish all in the same area. Families having fun and enjoying the great outdoors, across the road you get snacks , lunch or just hot drinks . You can't beat the setting it's breathe taking .
  • Feels like a beach town with lots of restaurants, beautiful beach front to cruise on long boards or simply to take a walk. Water park is very entertaining for the entire family. Nice sandy beach which is shallow. Bring your paddle board for the sunset, you won't regret it. Nice big play ground for kids too.
  • I've been visiting Sylvan lake for more than 15 years. It's finally worth to be called a world class beach. One thing though, the beach needs to be widened by 10~15 more meters. Check other international destinations and backfill the water with sand from Alberta site then charge $10/day/family.
