COVID-19 UPDATE: If you are traveling internationally, there are still COVID requirements in place. Please click here for details.
The easternmost island in the San Juans is also the most laid back so take a deep breath once you arrive in the protected inlet at Fisherman Bay, step onto the dock, and relax. Things are a little more leisurely here on the Friendly Isle. Lopez Island is 15 miles long with 63 miles of shoreline and everything from forests to farms to the Lopez Island Vineyards and Winery.
A ferry trip to Lopez Island starts with a drive north to Anacortes. Kenmore Air gets you here in about an hour, which gives you more time to relax into the all-natural beauty whether it’s looking out on the lagoon at Spencer Spit State Park or walking the rocky shoreline of Shark Reef Sanctuary. It’s no wonder why so many artists and craftspeople are drawn to the seclusion and the simplicity that is found here. Don’t be surprised if some of them wave. Remember, it’s the Friendly Isle.
