Paddling and Freediving at Sunshine Coast

While looking for a different place to get away to this weekend with Carrie, I decided to go to Sunshine Coast at the last minute. It was tough to find a place to stay because it was Valentine’s night, but after some searching I was lucky to find a nice cabin right by the sea: Burchill’s B&B. I cannot say enough good things about this place! The location is beautiful and filled with wildlife, the hosts are really friendly, and it is just footsteps away to get out on the kayak or paddleboard. It has an outdoor swimming pool (for summer time), and a hot tub that was great to warm us up in after a freezing paddling/freediving session.

While at Sunshine Coast, we paddle boarded at a couple of spots. The first day we went to The Tuwanek beach that’s located at the Sechelt Inlet. It was a very beautiful location for paddle boarding, the water was very peaceful, and for myself, it was interesting to explore the underwater world while freediving. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to explore much of it due to the cold water, but it would be an awesome place to come back to during the summer time! The next day we paddle boarded right around our cabin. Once again, it was very cold to free dive at this time, but it would be an awesome place to come back and explore during the summer time when it’s warmer!

Overall it was a nice weekend to get away to a quiet and secluded location of Sunshine Coast, I really enjoyed it!

  1. Another great excursion, Edgar, and it seems you picked a great B&B. I think you’ll definitely have to go back in the summer, when the water’s warm enough for you to do the activities you love. There are several Sunshine Coasts around the world. The one I knew about is in Australia. 🙂

  2. Looks gorgeous! I paddle boarded for the first time this past summer, and I love it. It is very relaxing, like you said. Unfortunately it is still cold where I live, so I am looking forward to more summer paddle board adventures.
