Area Information
Perhaps the best way to experience the Sunshine Coast is to take a long, leisurely drive. Set your own pace and explore the communities, beaches, parks, stores and restaurants along the coast.

Gibsons: A few minutes' drive from the Langdale ferry terminal is the seaside town of Gibsons, home to Molly's Reach restaurant, a landmark used as the set for The Beachcombers, the popular CBC-TV series of the 1980's. Today, Molly's Reach is a seafood restaurant at the hub of Gibsons. Locted in the oldest part of town, it's a stone's toss from Gibsons' harbour and cedar pier, and the funky, eclectic shops of Molly's Lane.

In the heart of Gibsons Landing is the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives. Inside you'll find over 9,000 photographs & documents detailing the history of the Sunshine Coast and its inhabitants. Landlubbers can buy freshly caught prawns or halibut, sold right off the boats. Be sure to find out from the locals when the fishermen sell their catch at the government dock. There's also a great seawalk that rings the vibrant working harbour, with spectacular views of the ocean and Coast Mountains.

From lower Gibsons, drive west along Gower Pooint Road to Ocean Beach Esplanade to the historic Bonniebrook area and Chaster Park, which features a cairn noting the 1792 arrival of Captain George Vancouver.

For last-minute necessities, head into Upper Gibsons, with its two malls and many retail stores.

Heading north on Highway 101, watch for the B&K Logging Road on your right, which is an entrance to Mount Elphinstone, a coastal rainforest with giant stands of old-growth cedar, maple and hemlock accessed by a well-maintained network of trails for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing.

Roberts Creek: Back on the highway, the next stop after Gibsons is the community of Roberts Creek, settled in 1889 by Englishman Harry Roberts. The hub of activity is the village square at the junction of Roberts Creek Road, Lower Road and Beach Avenue. Relaxed locals congregate to chat up tourists, enjoy a hearty organic meal, peruse local artworks at the art gallery and check out the shops.

A three-metre "mandala" representing the Mayan calendar is painted annually by 200 volunteers and welcomes you at the entrance to the Roberts Creek pier. It's a short trip to the Roberts Creek Provincial Park, a perfect setting for picnics or beachcombing. Cliff Gilker Park attracts hikers with trails that weave around the towering red cedars and babbling creeks.

If you're a golfer, you might want to play a round at the 18-hole Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club, the oldest course on the coast.

Wilson Creek: The Chapman Creek Salmon Hatchery, off Highway 101 near Wilson Creek, is a good place to learn about the life cycle of salmon. The hatchery has an education centre and visitors can see tiny fingerlings, ready for release to the ocean.

Davis Bay: This small shore side community is home to the coast's finest sandy beach. Try your hand at fly-tying and casting, snorkeling or kayaking. You can fish for bottom fish, crab and salmon from the pier, or just kick back with an inced cappuccino and munch on some of the best fish and chips in the area. Midsummer, Davis Bay hosts a sandcastle competition, on New Year's Day hardy souls brave its frigid water in the Polar Bear Swim, and an annual Kite Flying Competition is held in May.

Sechelt: North on Highway 101, Sechelt is the Sunshine Coast's cultural capital, teeming with artists, writers, galleries and theatres. It sits on a two-kilometre (1.25-mile) spit of land between the Strait of Georgia to the west and Sechelt Inlet to the east. Take a walking tour of downtown and check out the town's one-of-a-kind stores and restaurants. You can stroll along the pier and the seawall or visit the blooming gardens of Rockwood Lodge, a lovely heritage building and home to Sechelt's internationally acclaimed Festival of the Written Arts.

At the Sechelt First Nation's Tems Awiya Museum, learn about the native way of life. The museum, flanked by large totem poles, chronicles the heritage of the Shishalh Nation and displays First Nations' art, cedar carvings, aritifacts and baskets.

The Sechelt Marsh, near Sechelt Inlet, is a haven for birdlife - and birdwatchers. This small sanctuary and breeding ground for waterfowl is located on Wharf Avenue, one kilometre north of the town. You'll see buffleheads, red winged blackbirds, mallards and Canada geese, among others.

One of the best sandy beaches is nestled inside Porpoise Bay Provincial Park, 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) away on Sechelt Inlet Road. It's great for swimming, and you can rent a kayak or canoe or take a guided tour. The campsite fills quickly in summer, so call ahead for reservations.

Sechelt Inlet is rated on the of the world's top 20 recreational dives by Scuba Diving magazine. The inlet has nine provincial marine parks along its banks. The HMCS Chaudiere, a former Canadian navy ship, was scuttled off Kunechin point and now is home to an artifical reef.

Halfmoon Bay: A 16-kilometre (10-mile) drive north of Sechelt is Halfmoon Bay, a small village of permanent homes and summer cottages. The Halfmoon Bay General Store, built in 1938, is a popular landmark and gathering spot for the community. Walk down to the Government Wharf or stroll along Redrooffs Trail, a gently sloping, forested walkway with frequent interpretive signposts to explain the historical and natural sights.

There's great bird watching at Sargeant Bay Provincial Park, where an easy hike through the cedar forest leads you to one of the coast's most attractive coves. The park also has a fish ladder to enable spawining salmon to make their way up the creeks.

Smuggler's Cove: Here you'll find a provincial marine park and campground with a deep cove that has a fascinating history. Locals will tell you that Chinese immigrants en route to the U.S. once were hidden here, and rum was smuggled along this route during Prohibition.

Pender Harbour: This area includes the three communities of Madeira Park, Garden Bay and Irvine's Landing, and is famous for its ocean fishing and warm lakes. Known as the Venice of the North because of its complex maze of waterways, this is the place to swap your car for a motorboat, canoe or kayak.

Ruby Lake: Just north of Pender Harbour on Highway 101 lies Ruby Lake; home to the Ruby Lake Resort and Rainforest Spa. Near Ruby Lake Lagoon, the Iris Griffith Interpretive Centre offers guided hikes, a nature shcool program, trails, wetlands and bird watching.

Egmont: This picturesque community at the edge of the Skookumchuck Narrows provides a public launch ramp. From here take a tour boat to Chatterbox Falls at the head of Princess Louisa Inlet, a magical waterfall surrounded by wilderness. You'll travel along the Jervis Inlet, a deep fijord whose granite walls bear ancient pictographs.

Earl's Cove: Your Lower Sunshine Coast journey ends at Earls Cove, where the BC Ferry arrives to continue your journey 16 kilometres (10 miles) north to the Upper Sunshine Coast and Powell River.
