The Sunshine Coast peninsula is one of B.C.’s most scenic regions. A backdrop of the majestic coastal mountain range frames a myriad of bike and cross-country skiing trails and miles of sandy beaches. The area is home to nearly 29,000 people concentrated around the larger town centres of Sechelt, Gibsons Landing and Pender Harbour. The peninsula attracts people looking for a friendly, more relaxed lifestyle. Whether you settle in a town centre or choose a rural setting, you’re always close to a wonderful array of social, cultural and recreational activities. This popular area within the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is accessible by a scenic 40-minute BC Ferries ride from Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons.
Thanks to one of the mildest climates in Canada, gardening, golfing and fishing are year-round activities in Powell River. Add in a thriving arts and cultural community, and spectacular West Coast scenery, and you’ll see why those who visit want to stay. The town is large enough to offer every amenity to its 20,000 inhabitants, but small enough to maintain a friendly community ambiance. Residents enjoy world-class fishing, hiking, diving, canoeing, sailing, walking and kayaking.
