Platinum Vacation Group Ltd. specializes in renting quality Sunshine Coast, Gulf Island and Vancouver Island homes for travellers that want to experience British Columbia, Canada's west coast experience.

Thanks to a rain shadow that catches most of the moisture coming off the ocean, the Sunshine Coast has an annual total of 1,400 to 2,400 hours of sunshine, an average of 4 to 6 hours per day! Comprising of two land-locked peninsulas near West Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast is only accessible by boat or planeógiving it an isolated, relaxing atmosphere.
The Sunshine Coast is split into two areas, the upper and lower Sunshine Coast, by Jervis Inlet. The lower southern half, between the ferries at Langdale and Earls Cove, occupies the Sechelt Peninsula, while the northern upper half, between the ferry at Saltery Bay and Lund, sits on the Malaspina Peninsula. The area has a population of approximately 60,000 and includes the communities of: Gibsons (a seaside town), Roberts Creek (home of the Gumboot Nation), Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour, Egmont and Powell River. Texada Island is accessible from Powell River.

Youíll find plenty of recreational opportunities ó biking, hiking, and ski trails; canoe and kayak routes; and beachcombing spots. The end of the Sunshine Coast is the gateway to the beautiful Desolation Sound Marine Park, which is the largest marine park in BC.

Lovers of the arts and culture will enjoy the renowned Festival of the Written Arts, the Fibre Arts Festival and the Hackett Park Craft Fair. The Coast Cultural Alliance, formed to encourage development of the arts in the Sunshine Coast, provides information about artists, events and gallery.
