In the heart of lush green forests with wildlife everywhere you look, the Sunshine Coast is one of the most stunningly beautiful locations not only in British Columbia, but in the world. No matter what type of vacation you are looking to embark on, you are sure to find it here. And if taking a step away from the hustle and bustle of the city life is what you are looking for, then there may not be a better place to visit.
Home to a whopping eight provincial parks, and an unprecedented eleven marine parks, the Sunshine Coast provides the visitor with amazing experiences every minute of the day. Whether you are looking to conquer a mountain peak with an ocean view at the top, or explore the shoreline for extraodinary sea life, the park systems will be sure to please you. One park that is a must see is Sargeant Bay Provincial Park. Set aside to preserve the splendid beaches, rocky headlands, lagoons and heavily forested uplands, this day-use only park is a lovely spot for walking, nature viewing and picnicking. Boaters will find safe anchorage here, and the surrounding waters are perfect for canoeing, kayaking, board sailing, scuba diving and fishing.
When you’re not out exploring the country side, then make sure to take in the arts and culture district .With more artists per capita than any region in Canada, the Sunshine Coast proudly waves its artistic flag – the Purple Banner. From Langdale to Lund, the flying purple flag indicates the home studio or gallery of a Sunshine Coast artist at work. Talented people are drawn to the natural beauty and laid back lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast, and its growing reputation as an arts and culture centre is much deserved.
Also home to six great golf courses, an endless amount of scuba diving sites, and fantastic dining experiences, the Sunshine Coast is always a great choice for your next vacation. And with some great Sunshine Coast Bed & Breakfast options, there are no excuses why you shouldn’t circle the Sunshine Coast on your map as a future year round destination.
