Canoe Beach is located in the semi-rural community of Canoe, British Columbia. The community lies on the south side of Shuswap Lake, northeast of the city center, just off the Trans Canada Highway. Canoe Beach is the only public beach in the immediate Salmon Arm area and draws significant local tourist traffic in summer months. Winter days can be splendid at Canoe Beach as the lake is usually calm and wildlife is often observed on or near the water.
The Secwepemc peoples were known to use the mouth of Canoe Creek as a site to launch dugout canoes for travel around Shuswap Lake. It is thought that the fact that early white travelers were impressed by the dugout canoes drawn up on the beach is the source of the name of this community.
