North of Roberts Creek, visitors will pass through a string of small communities set along this beautiful peninsula

 

Three postage-stamp-size remnants of old-growth

forest on Mount Elphinstone have recently been

 designated as provincial park in BC.

A prolific number of mushrooms, some of which have

 yet to be properly identified, grow here.

 

Tread carefully and take only photographs.

 

North of Roberts Creek, visitors will pass through a

 string of small communities set along this beautiful

 peninsula.

 

Towns like Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay and Egmont are all

delightfully typical of the West Coast of BC: laidback

locals, artisan’s galleries, unique boutiques, cafes and

museums.

The community of Wilson Creek immediately north

of Roberts Creek is a large rural and residential area,

and the location of the regional airport and the Wilson

Creek Campground.

 

Located 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Roberts Creek on

 Highway 101, the small community of Sechelt sits on

the narrow Sechelt isthmus separating Sechelt Inlet

from the Strait of Georgia.

A magnificent sweep of beautifully cobbled beach

combines wave-polished granite ramparts with d

riftwood & many-coloured pebbles.

Treed mountains, cascading creeks and waterfalls

 create the spectacular coastline of Sechelt, making

the community a year-round delight for photographers.

Just 3.5 miles (6 km) east of Roberts Creek is the

scenic seaside village of Gibsons, the setting for the

internationally popular CBC television program The

Beachcombers, from 1971 to 1990.

 

Visit the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum or treat yourself

to a walking tour of the harbour.

Take a stroll on the Seawalk and view the barges,

fishing boats, tugs and float planes.

 

See the best of the area on a driving Circle Tour.

Head north out of Vancouver for a scenic circle tour

 of the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.

 

 Board a B.C. Ferries vessel at Powell River that will

take you across the waters of the Strait of Georgia to

Comox, on Vancouver Island’s east coast.

Travel south to Victoria and return to Vancouver by

 ferry from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen.
