Powell River is unique because its situated on the west coast of Canada with ocean views surrounded by backcountry forest, add to this unlimited lakes for fishing, swimming, boating, kayaking it really is a little slice of paradise. I love it here so much its hard to leave such stunning natural beauty, actually it is hard to leave because Powell River can only be accessed by ferry or plane. It takes 2 ferry rides to reach the Mainland and one ferry to go over to Vancouver Island.
Powell River has many cultural events, a farmer’s market, garden co-op, and lots of places with yummy food. The region is a hiker’s paradise, people come from all over the world to hike the Sunshine Coast Trail and surrounding mountains. The outdoor recreation is endless from trail hikes to walking along the ocean, and of course there are the famous sunsets over the waters of the West Coast. From my home in Mowat Bay its a 5 minute walk to Powell Lake.
