A QUAINT AND ECCENTRIC LITTLE COMMUNITY
The island lies south west of Texada Island and a short distance across the Salish Sea to the east coast of Vancouver Island. The main port is False Bay and it is Lasqueti’s most protected and popular anchorage.
The island is a well protected and under developed island that wishes to remain so. A quaint and eccentric little community of self-reliant homesteaders who enjoy the island’s mild climate and relative isolation. Many of the islanders have chosen not to install electricity, have managed to restrict development, minimize traffic and maintain the islands tranquility. It is like visiting a village from the past.
There is a pub selling Craft Beer and a grocery store selling basic essentials. There is no longer a fuel dock – it is now a dinghy dock. There is a summer time passenger service ferry to French Creek on Vancouver Island (every day except Tuesday)
It is a popular stop when travelling north.
