No, there are no palm trees to be seen, but there is sand, sun and lots of fun.

Devonshire Beach

Located less than 20 minutes from the town of Slave Lake, Devonshire Beach is an Alberta oasis with 1.5 kilometres of soft sand and tranquil views. The beach is well maintained and dogs are allowed – as long as their owners clean up after themselves and keep them on a leash.
