Hornby Island

It’s Time to Breath a Little Easier

Hornby Island is a unique Gulf Island in the middle of the Salish Sea between Vancouver Island and the mainland of Canada. From Buckley Bay, Vancouver Island you will start your journey to Hornby Island. Take the opportunity to soak up the distinct feel of the Gulf Islands as you board the BC Ferry for the beautiful ride to Denman Island. After a short, scenic drive across Denman visitors and locals alike can’t help but start to fully unwind as Hornby Island comes into view. A second, equally stunning 10 minute boat ride across the Channel brings you to your Hornby Island destination. Smile, relax and know that you have landed somewhere special.


Hornby Island offers gorgeous white sand beaches, rain forest hikes, and the breathtaking views of the bluffs of Helliwell Provincial Park. Enjoy the artisan shops, local cafes, farmers markets, wine tasting, and many musical events. The unique community has many offerings: explore, taste, and delight in your time here.


Set in a private area of the Island you will find Fossil Beach Farm. We would love to welcome you as our guests to stay with us in our luxe glamping accommodation.
