The Sunshine Coast

The Pointhouse is ideally situated mid coast so you can explore points north and south in easy day trips.

» The Sunshine Coast

Discover the Sunshine Coast. Although part of the British Columbia’s mainland  lying  just northwest of  Vancouver,  access to the region is only by air or water  due to the mountainous terrain. There are no bridges connecting the Sunshine Coast to Vancouver or Vancouver Island regions.
A scenic 40 minute ferry voyage or a 15 minute floatplane ride separates the laid back attitudes of the Sunshine Coast from the more frenetic pace of city life on the other side of the water.

Stretching 180 km (110 mi) along the Salish Sea from Howe Sound to Desolation Sound, one meandering highway links all the communities of Upper and Lower Sunshine Coast from Langdale to the end of the road, literally, in Lund. It’s best to get in the flow and enjoy the area’s local colour, including year round outdoor recreation, festivals,  great waterfront dining, music and unique art. Weather-wise, the Sunshine Coast is blessed with mild winters and warm dry summers.

The Pointhouse is ideally situated mid coast  so you can cover points north and south for easy day trips. Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is literally next door though many other interesting places are also nearby. Sechelt is the closest large economic center with a range of services, shopping and amenities. Neighborhood services are available in Halfmoon Bay at Welcome Woods Market.
