Russell Island has a lot going for it. Lots of history, a very pleasant trail around much of the island and a very pleasant anchorage. Perhaps its’ best feature though is this lovely shell beach on the eastern side. This is a very popular place to land in kayaks, a picnic table is nearby and the sunsets from the point are incredible. Just watch the reef off the northern side if you’re coming in by boat.
The Gulf Islands National Park area at Roesland on North Pender Island has some amazing arbutus trees (madrona trees for our friends down south)...
