Welcome to the Sunshine Coast
In British Columbia, CanadaKnow Before You Go
The Sunshine Coast is a 180 km stretch of paradise that’s tucked into the southwest corner of mainland British Columbia. The shoreline stretches from Howe Sound to Desolation Sound and is accessible only by ferry, boat, or plane. Come spend some time discovering vibrant communities, reconnecting with nature, and enjoying the laid-back vibe.
While exploring the Sunshine Coast, please remember to be safe, responsible, and respectful. We’re all visitors on the traditional territories of the Tla’amin, Klahoose, shíshálh, Skwxwú7mesh, and Homalco Nations.
