Getting Here & Getting Around
Getting to the Sunshine Coast is part of the adventure.
The Sunshine Coast is located on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada (just northwest of Vancouver) and stretches 180 km (110 mi) along the Salish Sea, from Howe Sound to Desolation Sound. Although it’s part of BC’s mainland, access to the region is by air or by water only due to the mountainous terrain. There are no bridges connecting the Sunshine Coast to the Vancouver or Vancouver Island regions.
