One of the main attractions of Pentiction are the beaches at Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake near the city. The beaches are beautiful, and you can play a number of different sports while you are there. If you want to just lay out and tan, you can do that. You can also go swimming in the clear, cool water. If you want to play some sports in the water, that is also acceptable. You could go jet skiing or you could go parasailing. Fishing is also a fun activity to do in the lakes.

If you don't want to just do water activities, however, you could also head back to the mainland for some mountain biking or rock climbing. There are also several groups that offer horse back riding around the scenic areas. If you visit in the winter, you can head to the mountains for skiing or snowboarding. Because of the climate, it doesn't get extremely cold, so being outdoors in the winter isn't too bad. You can also go skating or play hockey on some of the frozen ponds in the area. A lot of people like to go to the vineyards outside of the city and have wine tastings.
