Shellfish Capital of the
LUND, BC, CANADA
The picturesque seaside village of Lund, BC, is located on the west coat of Canada, 128km north of Vancouver, on the Sunshine Coast.
A village with about three hundred year-round residents, the population swells in the heat of summer as visitors boat, drive, or cycle here to enjoy Lund's charm and to access Desolation Sound Provincial Park, the Copeland Islands, Okeover Inlet, and tropical Savary Island.
Savary Island is rimmed by sandy white beaches and warm water - only minutes away by water taxi which offers service year round.
Sarah Point, 12km north of Lund, is the start of the 180km-long Sunshine Coast Trail which ends in Saltery Bay. With several access points and tributaries along its route, this scenic trail offers easy day hikes and free hut-to-hut hiking for multi-day trekks.
Outside the north end of the Lund Harbour, the pristine Copeland Islands Marine Park (aka Ragged Islands) hugs the shoreline toward world-renowned Desolation Sound. another route to Desolation Sound is along Okeover Inlet past the mariculture farms and through Malaspina Inlet. both popular waterways are happily shared by sport fishers, pleasure boaters, kayakers and avid scuba divers who enjoy the excellent underwater visibility and abundant sea life.
Sightseeing boats offer easy access to the area's ocean playground while kayakers intrigue curious sea lions, seals, dolphins, and rogue pods of orca whales.
Stay a while and take advantage of the variety of accommodations for all budgets including an RV park, B&Bs, hotel, cottages, and cabins.
