The Sunshine Coast has a vibrant arts and culture community and is home to some of Canada’s most celebrated and coveted literary and music festivals. The Sunshine Coast is also renown for its outdoor activities, and is ideal for anyone who has a passion for hiking, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, snowshoeing or camping.
