Introducing Sunshine Coast

Stretching 139km along the water from Langdale to Lund, the Sunshine Coast – separated from the Lower Mainland by the Coast Mountains and the Strait of Georgia – has an independent, island-like mentality that belies the fact that it's only a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. With Hwy 101 linking key communities like Gibsons, Sechelt and Powell River, it's an easy and convivial region to explore and there are plenty of available activities to keep things lively: think kayaking and scuba diving with a side order of artists' studios for good measure. Check the website of Sunshine Coast Tourism for information and pick up a copy of the Recreation Map & Attractions Guides ($3) for activities around the region.
