Experience Our Village

The Lower Sunshine Coast stretches from Langdale in the south to Egmont in the north, with a ferry terminal at each end. Situated between mountains and the sea, with well over 100 km of waterfront, it’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway from the Vancouver and Powell River regions – just a 40 minute ferry ride through world-class scenery from either location or a 20 minute flight by seaplane from the Island or Vancouver. But there’s so much to see and do here, you can easily spend a week or more.

The district municipality of Sechelt (from the Shishalh First Nations) is centrally located on a narrow isthmus of land bordered on one side by the Salish Sea (Georgia Strait) and on the other by Sechelt Inlet. We offer a world class mountain bike park, marine adventures, as well as hiking trails and lakes. With plenty of accommodations, restaurants and boutique shops Sechelt is the perfect place to eat, shop and play.

A Wonderful Place to call Home

Those of us who live on the Sunshine Coast know how lucky we are. But it can be easy in the busy-ness of life to take for granted all the local offerings. When was the last time you took a one or two day “staycation”, and let a local restaurant cook dinner, or treated yourself to a spa visit? Sechelt Village has everything you need and is surrounded by ocean and mountains…simply magical.

History of Sechelt

The first self-governing nation (1986) in Canada, the Shishalh, were the original residents of the Sunshine Coast. Their tenure is measured in thousands of years. Their history and current day culture is displayed in the Band’s museum in Sechelt and is visible in (protected) petroglyphs and middens along the shorelines. Read More…

The HUB of Events on the Coast

Downtown Sechelt hosts yearly events that attracts thousands of people to our downtown including CANADA DAY, OKTOBERFEST and FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS. We also host ART exhibits that showcases 100’s of local artists’ work in our shops and galleries. In the summer months there are buskers, stage performances and fairs supporting our local talent.
