Langdale and Port Mellon
The ferry from West Vancouver will bring you to Langdale, at the southern end of the lower Sunshine Coast. Langdale and neighbouring Port Mellon are largely residential communities, with Langdale being home to the ferry terminal, while Port Mellon is home to the state of the art Howe Sound Pulp and Paper Mill.
View towards Port Mellon from the Ferry
This pulp mill is the oldest operating pulp mill in British Columbia; it has been operating since 1908! However, it is designed with the latest technology, minimizing air pollution, so that the local area enjoys fresh ocean air. Next door to the pulp mill, you'll find the Hillside Demonstration Forest, an education center focusing on silviculture and harvesting practices, as well as wildlife preservation.
Langdale also offers camping sites, RV sites and a Par 3 golf course.
