Catch of the Day
International Dive Destination
The region is known for its exceptional bird watching. Loons, mergansers, wood ducks and harlequins are but a few of the waterfowl that make their home along the coast. In the spring tiny ruby red rufous hummingbirds dart from flower to flower; great owls watch silently in the forest and in the fall pale chevrons of snow geese move across the sky, heading south for the winter. Nature, pure and unspoiled, awaits you at Paradise Cove Oceanfront Estates.
Hike, Bike and Climb
The 170 kilometre (106 mile) Sunshine Coast Trail accommodates everyone from day hikers to ultra-marathoners. Easy to get to with more than twenty access points along the way, hikers are rewarded with abundant wildlife, gorgeous lookout points and stunning westerly views of the Strait of Georgia and its emerald islands. The trail is extremely well maintained and hikers can take advantage of camping facilities and lodging located along the route.
During the spring and summer months, take advantage of guided hikes or let the local hiking club introduce you to some of the region's most popular wilderness trails. Maps and detailed information regarding hiking routes and activities are available 20 minutes away at the Powell River Visitor's Centre.
There are numerous biking routes well suited to beginner, intermediate and advanced off-road riders. Once again, the Visitor's Centre is the place to go for detailed maps and trail descriptions.
Magnificent by Water, Land and Air
Make your way to Okeover Arm Provincial Park where summer ocean temperatures could almost be described as tropical. Then sit back and marvel at an Okeover sunset while you dine on the catch-of-the-day at one of the region's finest restaurants, The Laughing Oyster.
Drive, walk or cycle onto a BC ferry at Westview terminal and arrive 20 minutes later at Blubber Bay on Texada Island. The island offers spectacular beaches, fine dining, superb arts and crafts gallery located just around the corner from the ferry terminal, and hours of swimming delight in the crystal clear aquamarine waters of the abandoned limestone quarries. Load the car up with kayaks and bikes, or simply walk onto the ferry and meet up with a taxi at Blubber Bay. Head for the beaches and trails at Shelter Point Provincial Park and don't miss a walk on Gillies Bay, famous for its Sandcastle Festival in early August. This is a day trip you won't want to miss. Looking for a bird's-eye-view? Float plane charters or helicopter tours are another way to island hop and take in the endless beauty of coastal BC.
