Why The Sunshine Coast Is The Best Place To Buy 


Located on BC’s lower mainland coast from Pasley Island to Refuge Cove, the Sunshine Coast is considered one of the most beautiful places in Canada and the world! With islands, inlets, seascapes, and mountains, it’s no wonder buyers are excited to invest in local real estate. From small cities and towns like Sechelt, Gibsons and Roberts Creek to remote communities like Egmont, Port Mellon and Halfmoon Bay, there’s nothing quite like coastal living. Here are just a few key reasons the Sunshine Coast is the best place to buy!

Small-Town Living

Sechelt is the largest city on the Sunshine Coast, with a population of 10,000, but most people live in small, rural communities. The Sunshine Coast Regional District has a population of over 30,000 residents, but they’re scattered across the region. Investing in property on the Sunshine Coast gives you the small-town feel and plenty of space between you and your neighbours. Although the towns and villages may be remote and spread out, there’s a strong sense of community among local residents!

Active Lifestyle

If you love the outdoors and have an active lifestyle, there’s no better place to indulge in your hobbies than the Sunshine Coast! Most communities are on or near the ocean, with the west coast rainforest as your backyard. From water sports like kayaking, canoeing, and sailing to land-based pursuits like hiking, trail running, and mountain biking, there are plenty of activities to suit your interests. Since so many other community members share a passion for active outdoor living, there are a bunch of clubs, societies, and meetups for exploring all the Sunshine Coast has to offer!

Abundant Variety of Foods

Are you a foodie who loves eating fresh local ingredients? The Sunshine Coast is the perfect place for you to buy property! Its location along the coast gives it a temperate Mediterranean climate in the summer and mild winters. BC’s Sunshine Coast also has an abundance of wild-caught seafood and fantastic growing conditions for fresh local produce! Did you know? The Sunshine Coast is also a hotbed of smaller, local food producers. From Suntwist Acres in Madeira Park, featuring fresh goat’s milk and microgreens, to Persephone Brewing Company in Gibsons, the Sunshine Coast is a food lover’s paradise!

Access to Services

One of the best parts of living on the Sunshine Coast is the feeling of peace, seclusion, and calm it brings. But that doesn’t mean you need to give up easy access to the services you need! Sunshine Coast communities are connected by several BC Ferries routes, with smaller island transportation handled by independent ferries. To help you stay healthy, there’s an acute-care hospital in Sechelt that serves neighbouring communities. Worried about staying connected? Hop a harbour flight to other coastal towns and major cities like Vancouver, Victoria, and Nanaimo!
