Grocery or Supermarket
“Located in the town center, close to the Watermark hotel and Gyro beach. It's also right next to the BC Liquor store. There is more selection at the larger grocery store up the hill called Buy Low but they should have everything you need if you need to stop somewhere right in town.”

“This is a great spot to get a beachside drink and have a bite to eat. They have the best spot to watch live music if you can make one of their live shows. You really feel like you are on vacation at the Cantina. We recommend riding your bike there so you can have a couple of drinks. Just don't forget your bike lock as you can't bring them inside with you. ”

Beach
“This is the main beach in Osoyoos. There is a nice walking path in either direction. There is a band shell which hosts live music and family friendly events many nights. We love to right our bikes over, have a picnic for dinner while taking in live music or taking in the views. There is a concession stand there which serves a variety of food and drinks that are quite good. ”
