From provincial parks to museums, the Sunshine Coast is home to some of British Columbia's finest attractions. Start with the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives in Gibsons to learn more about the history of the region and its residents. There's two exhibition rooms with displays and artifacts from different eras of local history, and an archives with over 9,000 historical photographs and documents.
The Sunshine Coast's rugged geography means countless places to explore. For an unique subtropical paradise, visit Savary Island. A long, narrow island in the Strait of Georgia, it has largely untouched white sand beaches, with the warmest water north of Mexico and magnificent views of the mountains and ocean. Various ecosystems here include forested dunes, meadows, and sand cliffs.
