Best things to do in Sunshine Coast Regional District

“The trail in Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park is one of the most well known and spectacular hikes on the Sunshine Coast. At the end of the trail, hikers are rewarded with being witness to one of the largest tidal flows in the world. You just have to time it right! After about one hour of walking (4 km hike), you will reach Skookumchuck Narrows. Skookumchuck is a Chinook First Nations word meaning “strong water” and this area is home to one of the greatest natural spectacles in British Columbia. Twice daily, nature puts on a show as the tide changes and the flow of saltwater switches, reversing the direction and power of these incredibly turbulent rapids. The difference in water levels between one side of the rapids and the other sometimes exceeds 9 feet in height, with 200 billion gallons of water flowing through the Skookumchuck Narrows connecting Sechelt and Jervis inlets. The Sechelt Rapids are famous for their spectacular whirlpools and, for extreme kayakers and divers, “Skook” is one of the great white-water wonders of the world, attracting thrill-seekers from across the globe.”

“You can't get a truer Sunshine Coast experience than at this place in Roberts Creek. About a 10-15 minute drive away from the house but well worth the outing. ”

“The trail in Smuggler Cove begins in a thick, forested area with lush greenery and spectacular arbutus trees along an easy to follow gravel path. Shortly in, you’ll reach a wooden walkway that takes you over a marsh which can sometimes be a bit submerged during the winter months or after heavy rainfalls. This is a great year-round hike that is very accessible. If you are into birding, don’t forget your binoculars for this trail to see spectacular wildlife and different species. Entrance to Smuggler Cove Provincial Park. Another 10 minutes into the hike you arrive at the camping site area with the first glimpse of Smuggler Cove on the right and you can follow the trail straight alongside the cove. This section of trail will continue to the mouth of the cove with several viewpoints looking out into Georgia Straight. Once you reach the mouth of the cove soak in the beauty from your perch on the rocks that overlook the Straight, Thormanby Island, and Texada Island. For a bit longer hike you can follow the loop as it continues along the shores inside the cove and connects back up to the same trail that leads back towards the campsite. At the campsite, another short trail leads to a small beach area with a different view of a small island that lies just off shore. ”
