A QUAINT AND ECCENTRIC LITTLE COMMUNITY
The island is about 12 miles long and three miles wide, the same size and shape as Manhattan. Largely undeveloped, Lasqueti Island lies southwest of Texada Island, a short distance across the Strait of Georgia from Parksville and Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. The island is a quaint and eccentric little community of self-reliant homesteaders who enjoy the island’s mild climate and relative isolation
False Bay, the location of the island’s ferry terminal, is also Lasqueti’s tiny commercial centre, and the gateway to a paddler’s paradise of coves, offshore reefs, islets and islands. The wonderful silence that envelops these islands is characteristic of the ambience in remote locales on the central coast of British Columbia.
