Located at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast Peninsula, the Pender Harbour area is a complex maze of inlets, islands, coves, and lakes. With more than 100 miles of shoreline reaching three miles inland, the Egmont/Pender Harbour area is home to several marinas and numerous tourist accommodations, artists’ studios, local shops, restaurants, a health centre and the School of Music.
There are several fresh water swimming lakes in the area, as well as extensive hiking and mountain bike trails and diving spots.
The scattered community of settlements clustered around the actual harbour includes Madeira Park, Beaver Island, Garden Bay and Irvines Landing. To the north are Kleindale, Sakinaw Lake, Ruby Lake, Earl’s Cove, Egmont, Skookumchuck Narrows and the waterways up Jervis Inlet.
