Located at the south end of the Sunshine Coast, the Gibsons Landing is a quaint seaside village perched on a hillside overlooking the harbour and faces nearby islands in Howe Sound. As the crow flies, the “Gateway to the Sunshine Coast” is 16km/10mi from Vancouver. To get to Gibsons, it’s a 40-minute ferry ride from West Vancouver, followed by a 5km/3mi drive from the Langdale ferry terminal. Gibsons has earned international recognition: it was recently named the “Most Liveable Community under 20,000” (2009) in a world-wide competition by the UN-backed International Awards for Liveable Communities. But, it’s perhaps most famously known as the location, Molly’s Reach for the longtime hit TV show The Beachcombers, which first aired in 1972 and ran until 1990.
