The Sunshine Coast of BC Accommodations —
A guide for Cottages, Bed and Breakfasts and Vacation Rentals for your next holiday
Welcome to the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada Accommodation guide for Bed and Breakfasts, Cottages and Vacation Rentals. This guide is comprised of some of the finest accommodations on Canada's Beautiful Sunshine Coast. Just a short 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, BC, we offer a wide variety of accommodations from luxury B&Bs to cozy cottages by the ocean. From romantic two day getaways to spa retreats to adventure holidays, the Sunshine Coast has something for everyone.
There’s a good reason why the Sunshine Coast is named so – it receives approximately 2,400 hours of sunlight annually making it drier and sunnier than other destinations along the west coast. It offers sun-warmed beaches, marine site-seeing from sea kayaking to scuba diving adventures. Enjoy the picturesque coastal scenery and quaint galleries that are all part of this beautiful 180 km coastline. Boarding the ferry in Horseshoe Bay, your journey to the Sunshine Coast really begins. For forty minutes you will be enchanted by the scenery of fir and cedar treed islands against a backdrop of coastal mountains. After docking, stop for lunch in the seaside town of Gibson's, British Columbia.
Gibsons is home to Molly's Reach where they filmed the "Beach Combers" Television series. Take a stroll along the waterfront and enjoy one of the many coffee shops and art galleries. Meander your way up the highway 12 km to Roberts Creek , a haven for artists and artisans. This waterfront community boasts funky restaurants as well as shops and galleries. Stop by the pier and enjoy the magnificent views or maybe relax with a round of golf at the Roberts Creek Golf Course.
Just 30 minutes from Gibson's is Sechelt, the land between two waters and home of the Sechelt Inlet. This pristine wilderness is a favorite of Sea Kayakers who love to explore the marine parks and swim in the sheltered waters. Come Kayak the Inland Sea and visit some of the oceanview Sechelt bed and breakfasts that lay at the waters edge.
Halfmoon Bay, just 15 minutes north from Sechelt is home to Smugglers Cove and some of the most stunning Marine Parks in British Columbia. Divers will love Coopers Green and Welcome Beach. Thornamby Island boasts some of the nicest sand beaches found anywhere on the West Coast of BC, Canada.
Pender Harbour lies just north of Halfmoon Bay and quaint little marinas and oceanfront pubs dot the area. Enjoy dinner at the Rockwater Spa Restaurant, Ruby Lake or the Upper Deck in Secret Cove.
While visiting drive up the end of the road and the Earls Cove Ferry Terminal. Follow the signs to Egmont Road and be sure to take in a hike to the world famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park. You will witness the awesome power of the some of the world's fastest tidal rapids. See the extreme kayakers as they challenge the standing waves. Egmont is also the jumping off point for tours to the World Famous Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls.
