If it had been up to Harry Roberts, an eccentric and hardworking pioneer who visited this area in the 1920s (and inspired Roberts Creek‘s name), you would be about to become residents of the "Sunshine Belt" – we apparently have a real estate developer from Gibsons to thank for adding the "Coast." But whatever the name, the natural and cultural environment are the real attraction to a community, though only 40 minutes from Vancouver, still seems a lifetime away from the "big city lifestyle."
With over 90 pages of detailed information in print and our 500+ Online Business Listings, newCOASTER Magazine is a valuable resource for newcomers to the Sunshine Coast and existing residents alike. We hope to inspire readers to experience the culture, lifestyle and natural environment that make this area so special and proudly give voice to current residents and local businesses that help shape this unique region. Whether your visit is temporary or permanent, we offer newCOASTER as a guide to aid you with your integration to the Sunshine Coast‘s esteemed way of life. Please contact us to request a print copy or if you have any questions or comments.
