Frequently Asked Questions about Sunshine Coast






About Sunshine Coast
British Columbia's Sunshine Coast is a quiet stretch of land between Gibsons and Lund, dotted with quaint coastal villages, waterfront shopping and dining destinations, eclectic art galleries, and ample outdoor delights. Sunshine Coast B&B rentals abound, offering a homey retreat to a slower pace of life.
Things to Do in Sunshine Coast
The Sunshine Coast has more artists per capita than any other region in Canada. Stroll through any stretch of the coast and you'll spot the signature purple banners that studios use to indicate that they're open. For a look at historic art and culture in the region, visit the Tems Swiya Museum or Powell River Historical Museum & Archives. Outdoor activities are particularly popular in this region, with landscapes that are ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and rock climbing. Paddle the Powell River Canoe Route or visit the scenic Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club. Explore the carefully planned landscape of the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden, or soar above it all with a scenic seaplane flight over the coast. There's no shortage of ways to enjoy this charming landscape.
Sunshine Coast Events
Sunshine Coast events cater to the same creatives who so happily call the area home. The Sunshine Coast Art Crawl is a three-day event in October with more than 100 participating galleries and studios. Snag a map and passport and start exploring the diverse range of styles and mediums that inspire artists in the area. The Festival of the Written Arts takes place each August, drawing a different type of artist to the region. Visitors can chat with self-published authors, snag literary merchandise, and delve into the finer points of the craft.
Shopping in Sunshine Coast
The Sunshine Coast offers a distinctive shopping experience with several farmers and artisans markets to explore. Visit Powell River's Open Air Market for treats like organic produce, home-baked goods, and local honey. For a more traditional shopping experience, you can stop by the Town Centre Mall or Crossroads Village Shopping Centre in Powell River. Get outfitted for all your outdoor explorations along the Sunshine Coast at Powell River Outdoors or Alpha Adventures. Both offer rentals if you only need your equipment for a few days.
Dining in Sunshine Coast
You can start your day off right with a hearty breakfast just steps from your room by booking at one of the many Sunshine Coast B&B rentals in the area. Later in the day, you can explore a diverse range of restaurant options. The Laughing Oyster has specialties like gunpowder prawns, kalamari and tsaziki, seafood salad, and the restaurant's namesake oysters. The Alchemist Restaurant offers an elegant menu featuring distinctive dishes like braised manila clams, tequila tuna with homemade pickles, and pan seared west coast snapper. For something more casual, stop in to Moose n' Eddies Pub & Grill for burgers, chicken wings, and ribs.
