The Hornby Way

The Magic of the Gulf

Wreathed by the waves of the Salish Sea, Hornby Island is a world of wonders: sandy beaches, lush forests, and starry skies. It’s also rich in community, as many of us came for a visit and stayed for life. We care deeply for our island and people, treading lightly on the land, conserving water, and treating others with kindness and respect. Our Hornby is something you have to experience for yourself. We think you’ll love it.
