Soft sand beaches in Alberta feel few and far between but what the province lacks in quantity, it makes up for quality!

Whether you like to splash around, get a tan, or go boating, consider checking out Sir Winston Provincial Park – a perfect sunny day destination northeast of Edmonton.

Located 2 hours and 40 minutes from the capital city, this charming spot is where you can enjoy everything from paddleboarding and swimming to “ah-mazing” sunsets that are worth the drive.

However, if three hours seem like a bit much and you want to extend your day trip, you’re in luck!
