Buckley Bay is your launching off point for the beautiful, serene islands of Hornby and Denman.

Hornby Island is home to many artists, retired professionals, small business owners, remote workers, and young families who share a love of rural island life. Over the past 30 years, the island has become a coveted destination and its population easily quadruples in size during the summer months. The shoulder seasons are a preferred time for hiking, mountain biking, marine activities, weddings, and retreats. 

Denman Island is one of the Northern Gulf Islands. It is famous for its all ages dances, festivals, quiet roads, and beautiful scenery. Yoga is a prominent activity, as is gardening, and volunteerism. Many artists have made Denman Island their home for decades, and as a result there is a thriving local artistic community.
