Gibsons BC Travel Guide
Welcome to Gibsons!
Gibsons is widely known for its starring role in the Canadian TV show The Beachcombers, but residents of the scenic oceanfront town insist there is much more to their community than the famous diner, Molly's Reach. Known as the gateway to the Sunshine Coast because of its close proximity to the Langdale Ferry Terminal, this charming fishing village has a surplus of parks, including the Winegarden Waterfront Park, which is centrally located near the wharf and offers a picturesque vista. Visitors can take advantage of the thriving art community by joining one of the artisan tours, while sporty types can golf at any of the nearby courses or partake in the numerous boating adventures offered. Every July, Gibsons plays host to the Sea Cavalcade, a lively 3-day event that offers a pancake breakfast, a street dance, a fishing derby, a barbecue and more. Molly's Lane Market has eclectic shops and bistros, while nearby Gibsons Wharf has a boardwalk with a gazebo and an adjacent floating garden, making it the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll.
Formed in 2002 when the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum and Sunshine Coast Maritime Museum joined forces, this two-storey attraction features exhibits from the past, including period costumes, First Nations artifacts, old machinery parts, and reconstructions of early 20th century rooms.
