That's a nice loop for five days. Denman and Hornby Islands, south of Courtenay are very nice. Parksville and near by Coombs are also worth a visit. The drive up the Sunshine Coast is lovely. Stop and take in the views as you travel. If you want a walk, then check out Skookumchuck Narrows just before you get to Earl's Cove at the north end of the Sunshine Coast.

If you are going to the Sunshine Coast, you should really consider a beautiful B&B or cottage. The Coast is famous for its wonderful private accommodations. Here is a link to the website: www.bbsunshinecoast.com

They have over 120 B&Bs and cottages to choose from, and they cover the whole Coast from Gibsons to Powell River.

Here is a site with good maps, and other info on the Sunshine Coast: www.sunshinecoastcanada.com

You can drive from Victoria to Comox and take the trip over to Powell River all in 1 day. Then having another 3 or 4 days to explore the Sunshine Coast will work out great. Have a great trip.
