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.
