Located on the lower Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.
Sechelt is just a 40-minute ferry ride from West Vancouver, followed by a 27km/17mi drive up Highway 101. Sechelt is the name of a town, a peninsula, an inlet, and a people. The town is a small community sitting on a sandbar; the narrow Sechelt isthmus which separates Sechelt Inlet from the Salish Sea. Named after the original First Nations people of the region – the shíshálh.
What to See and Do Pick your favourite pair – a heaping waffle cone of gelato & a seawall stroll in Davis Bay, a pastry and a latte from one of the many local coffee shops, or a fresh plate of fish & chips & a local craft beer while sitting on a waterfront patio – and you’re sure to find it in Sechelt.
With plenty of locally owned shops, boutiques, and galleries, Cowrie Street in Sechelt’s downtown hub is the perfect place to shop for local art & handcrafted goods, books, beads, sporting goods, and clothing. Round it out with a peek inside one of the vintage shops and you’re sure to find that one-of-a-kind item to take home with you. Where to Stay
