Overview

Let the Sechelt Visitor Centre introduce you to all that Sechelt and the lower Sunshine Coast have to offer. Nestled between Georgia Strait and Sechelt Inlet, is the town of Sechelt. Just two hours north of Vancouver, B.C., you'll feel like you're a world away. Enjoy small-town friendliness, stunning scenery, and our many services. There is literally something for everyone: a multitude of festivals, farm to table restaurants, farmers' markets, local breweries, First Nations' museum and cultural tours, a plethora of artists and artisans, musicians and dancers, and of course, the great outdoors with its mountains, lakes and ocean, all providing countless adventure opportunities for all levels of ability. Our visitor centre is located in amongst some of Sechelt's most beautiful gardens and is a short block to the beach. We have wifi, guest computers, and knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff and volunteers to help make your visit a memorable one!
