The Sunshine Coast is just a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, but it feels like another world. Disembark at Langdale and the pace of life becomes instantly slower and gentler. And as you follow the highway winding through small, charming communities, nature is never far away.
On this coast, nature often means water. There is, for instance, the famous Skookumchuck Narrows where twice daily, as the tides turn, 200 billion gallons of water flow turbulently between the Sechelt and Jervis inlets. If you want to explore more than churning waters, consider a guided hike of Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park with Funtastic Hikes and Tours; a stop at the cute Skookumchuck Cafe and Bakery promises tasty treats to reward your hard work.
