Mayne Island Travel Guide
Welcome to Mayne Island!
Just one bite of a freshly picked apple or a refreshing swim in a warm, sheltered bay will leave visitors to Mayne Island with indelible memories. Situated midway between Galiano Island to the north and Saturna Island to the south, Mayne Island boasts a warm, temperate climate and scenic surroundings that include orchards, pastures and forests. Hike the trail to the top of Mount Parke for an impressive view of Active Pass (the passage between Galiano and Mayne Island), the surrounding Gulf Islands and the mainland. Mayne—s quiet roads make them ideal cycling paths, with a shoreline tour taking peddlers approximately five hours. On route, stop in the community of Miners Bay to see the Mayne Museum, a one time jail that housed rowdies rather than records, and the Mayne Mast, a restaurant that was once the farmhouse for one of many Japanese settlers who helped establish Mayne—s commercial base.
