The islands of the Sunshine Coast region range from small and uninhabited to larger islands that are home to a handful (or more) of full time residents.

The more popular destinations like Texada, Savary or Nelson Island are a second home for summer dwellers that desperately need their fix of island paradise at least a few weeks each year. Much like the communities of the Coast, each island has its own personality, geographical traits and cast of characters that make it unique.

Each island can be accessed by private boat, some additionally by water taxi, and the largest, Texada Island, boasts public ferry service and commercial airline service. Services and amenities can be limited, so visitors are encouraged to plan ahead to make the most of their island time.
