Gibsons, BC

Gibsons is a well-established coastal British Columbia community, first settled by its namesake, George Gibson in 1886. It’s had a long history as a resource town, but is slowly becoming more driven by tourism. Nowadays Gibsons Landing, Langdale, Upper Gibsons, Gower Point, Hopkins and Granthams Landings are home to families, and commuters who enjoy the relaxed Sunshine Coast pace while maintaining proximity to Vancouver.


    • Gibsons Landing – restaurants dot the waterfront and main road of Marine Drive, while quaint shops, art galleries and the eclectic mix of Molly’s Lane shops draw the shoppers and gazers alike. The pier is a beautiful marine environment where you can watch the waves glisten. Or turn around and see Gibsons climbing the hills. Kayaks are available for rent in the harbor in the shoulder and high seasons.
    • Upper Gibsons has great bakeries and eateries and the Sunnycrest Mall shopping centre, with anchor stores London Drugs and SuperValu. The Royal Bank is right across the street from the hotel.
    • Another 20 minutes down the road is the community of Sechelt, and beyond that the playground of Pender Harbour, Ruby Lake and Egmont. The Skookumchuck Provincial Park hike (45 minutes) in to see sometimes 16 knot tidal ebbs and flows is a popular destination. Ask us to help point you in the direction for current viewing tides as arriving on slack can be anti-climactic!
    • Nearby beaches are Bonniebrook Beach and Chaster Beach, down Pratt Road and the Roberts Creek beach is just 15 minutes’ drive away. Along with the stunning Cliff Gilker Park and Sunshine Coast Golf Course.
    • Next door to The Cedars Inn on the other side is the Gibsons Cinema. This theater shows first run movies
