Quality of Life Advantages

Those looking to spend more time focused on a positive quality of life can do so easily on the Southern Sunshine Coast with a wide range of community facilities and amenities, easy access to recreational and outdoor activities, and increased opportunities for home ownership.

From the ocean to the rainforest to the mountains, the outdoor experiences and adventures are abundant. Here, you can kayak pristine waters, hike and bike endless trails, boat and fish lakes, rivers, and coastline, golf, camp, cross-country ski, snowshoe, and explore backcountry experiences. At times, you can even do all this in the same season. To top it off, the beach access is unmatched, with dozens of public-access beaches sprawling from Langdale to Egmont.

If home ownership is in your sights, options from apartments to single-family homes to vacant land are more attainable in relation to the Lower Mainland. Build your dream home or find the perfect apartment to suit your needs. The communities of the Southern Sunshine Coast are also well-serviced. Residents can access four public libraries, three public swimming pools, large and small grocers, several elementary and secondary schools, a community college, hospital, dozens of community parks, walking paths, and public spaces that span from Langdale to Egmont.
