Sechelt & Gibsons

British Columbia's Lower Sunshine Coast

More info on Sechelt
More info on Gibsons

The area from Gibsons to Lund and Desolation Sound Provincial Park is known as the Sunshine Coast. The area is aptly named because of its predominantly sunny weather but it is more than just the sunshine that attracts residents and visitors alike. The majestic coastal range serves as a backdrop to the unexpected explosions of green from the numerous islands that fill Howe Sound. The Lower Sunshine Coast is a changing blend of seascapes, mountains and forests and is steeped in the history of its first inhabitants, the Sechelt people.

The Sunshine Coast boasts some of the best salmon fishing in B.C., spectacular scuba diving, great camping; a network of hiking and biking trails; a vibrant and active arts community and an atmosphere of friendliness.

The Lower Sunshine Coast is composed of a number of small communities with such intriguing names as Gibsons, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour and Earl's Cove. Each community has something special to offer the visitor; whether it be the Sechelt Nation's Museum in Sechelt, the Bird Sanctuary at Halfmoon Bay or Ruby Lake, the world's only fresh water lake where cutthroat salmon spawn. From spectacular scenery to exciting outdoor recreation possibilities, the Sunshine Coast is a magnet for the outdoor enthusiast.
