CLOSE TO VAN­COU­VER

While the to­pog­ra­phy re­sem­bles Van­cou­ver Is­land and the laid-back Gulf Is­lands, the Sun­shine Coast of B.C. also has a few dif­fer­ences, says John McKen­zie, di­rec­tor of sales at Wa­ter­mark at Sechelt.

As a part of the main­land, the Sun­shine Coast is only a 45-minute ferry ride from West Van­cou­ver. This means it’s easy to visit Van­cou­ver or Whistler just for the day, some­thing that is a con­sid­er­ably longer jour­ney from Van­cou­ver Is­land.

The life­style in­fra­struc­ture is well-es­tab­lished in the Sechelt area. There are three golf cour­ses nearby, along with an in­door ten­nis fa­cil­ity, an air­port and a newly-ex­panded re­gional hos­pi­tal. Boat­ing and char­ter fish­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties are also plen­ti­ful.
