Settled in 1886 by pioneer George Gibson, the Town of Gibsons rose to national fame during the 1970s with the Beachcombers TV series. George continues to watch over the village centre where he once played the roles of the Town’s first innkeeper and postmaster.
Recipient of several international accolades including “Best Drinking Water” and “Most Livable Town in the World”, Gibsons is abundant with arts and culture, miles of beaches, everyday conveniences and a charming harbourfront setting.
Located at the “Gateway” to the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Gibsons is just five minutes from the Langdale Ferry Terminal and a short 40-minute BC Ferry to Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver.
Living in historic Gibsons Landing means you can walk to the local markets, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, the SC Museum, library, the Gibsons Marina and of course the beach!
