Three minutes walk to the Sea Walk; five minutes walk to the bakery and restaurants; 10 minutes walk to the Art Gallery; Bookstore; Organic Food store ;Willington Beach Park and Museum. Five minutes walk to the Ferry that will take you to Texada and Vanocuver Islands. Forest trails only fifteen minutes walk away Dinner cruising; Kayaking ; Fishing; Canoning; rock climbing; swimming both in the lakes and ocean; Music Events;....., And International Choral Festaval. There are many thing you can do while you are in Powell River. Powell River is a hiden treasure of West Coast of British Columbia, Canada, due to the Isolation from the big cities on the Main Land, You will have to take two ferries to get here, Don't let that discourage you, The ferry trips themselves are a life time experience, The ferry will pass many small islands where tall Cedars; Firs; and Arbutus trees grow; and the bald eagles fly; the water below is home to Pacific Salmons; Cod fish Prawns and Dungeness Crabs. And because of Powell River is insulated from the big cities, It Is a very Safe Place for tourists to be here.. Local people are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend you come to Powell River - ' The Pearl of the Sunshine Coast' ( By the way we have the best tasting oyesters in the world.)to explore , and relax and unwind at Boxwood Cottages. Hammocks, swing, picnic tables, and chairs, large lawn suround by flowers, and fruits trees,, Bar-B-Q under the grape arbour, small fridge to keep your beer cold. Owner Diana is a Horticulturist and Landscape artist, and a firm believer of Permaculture.More
