Vancouver is the gateway to the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Whistler Resort, the Canadian Rockies, Victoria and Vancouver Island.

The Sunshine Coast is located in southwest British Columbia, at the northwest of Vancouver. It is part of the mainland but because of its mountainous terrain, it is only accessible by ferry, water taxi, helicopter, float plane or private aircraft. It’s about a 40-minute ferry ride from Vancouver.

Here are 5 things to do at the Coast:

1.Climb Soames Hill. It’s a 5-minute drive from the ferry terminal. From the summit, you can see the best views of the Sunshine Coast. This is for those who can take the intense workout to hike to the summit.
2.Stroll the pier at Roberts Creek. This pier extends into the ocean and is the best place to watch the sunset. Enjoy coffee at the promenade’s Gumboot Café and check out the Roberts Creek artists’ galleries and studios.
3.Go to Davis Bay for coffee or perhaps fly a kite. This is a perfect place to spend the evening.
4.Visit a sturgeon at Target Marine Hatchery. The place is committed to conservation and health. You can buy good quality caviar at the farm.
5.Stroll at Bonniebrook Beach, a quiet beach only locals go to. There are no restrooms here.
