Welcome to the Sunshine Coast BC!
Whether you are a first timer visitor to the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, a frequent visitor or a resident, prepare to learn something new and find exactly what you are looking for on this site.
For more than a century, the area has captured the hearts of those that have visited and the local residents.
The area is located north of Vancouver BC and is accessed by BC Ferries, water taxi, sea plane service, and from Vancouver International Airport. When travelling to the area, you would think it is an island, separate from the Lower Mainland of BC. The fact is the Sunshine Coast is attached by land mass, there is just no road access.
The better than average climate, gorgeous scenery, more than 20 provincial parks, lakes, beaches, talented artisans, great food and the sunshine-coast lifestyle make the Sunshine Coast a great escape from city life. You can accomplish a short visit to the area in a day trip from Vancouver. The ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay is only 45 minutes long. Once you arrive, you will feel worlds away from the bustle of a major metropolitan city.
Old growth forest can be found in the Caren Range and it is spectacular. The Caren Range is home to some of the oldest Western Cedar in Western Canada. If you enjoy hiking, you will be taken back by the beauty of the local forested areas, waterfalls, wildlife, and native plants. It is truly a site to behold.
