Denman Island is a Northern Gulf island with a flourishing arts scene, a picturesque natural environment, and plenty of activities for the active visitor or quiet recreation.

Do you want to discover incredible parks, and outstanding artists or take in the stress-free atmosphere with meditation, yoga, Tai Chi classes? Denman Island has something for everyone!

One of the best ways to discover Denman and Hornby Island is on electric bikes that can be rented daily

Morning Beach is located on the Northeast side of Denman Island. To reach the Steep Komas Bluffs take a 15 min drive from the ferry down a paved road that turns into gravel and ends with scenic views of the Coast Mountains. Picnic tables are available at the top of the stairs, along with a viewing stand and interpretive signs.

Take the staircase down and walk along the beach during low tide, exploring driftwood, sea life, tide pools, and sandy beaches.

15 minutes away, the Fillongley Provincial Park has a small campground with a day-use area that was once a beautiful estate.
