Welcome to Hornby Island!
Hornby Island—s population is an eclectic group of people united by a casual lifestyle and a serious approach to the environment, evident by its many artists (especially potters) and the innovative Hornby Recycling Depot. Visitors find the residents willing to share their paradise. In the summer, over 2000 visitors enjoy Hornby—s Hawaii-like white sand beaches and bathtub-warm water. Divers from around the world sojourn here. Helliwell Provincial Park is particularly enticing, as sightings of rare six-gill sharks are frequent. The renowned Hornby Festival draws music lovers with its provocative sounds in August. The picturesque island is also a favourite with recreation enthusiasts, as kayaking, scuba diving and cycling are some of the island's more popular activities.
