Fun things to do on San Juan Islands
Each of the San Juan Islands has its own distinctly different personality. San Juan Island is the second biggest and most populous of the islands, with a less wild, more gently undulating landscape than Orcas Island, much more going on than Shaw or Lopez Islands. Here are some fun things to do according to San Juan PM:
If you’re arriving by ferry from Anacortes you’ll arrive directly into Friday Harbor and it’s worth spending some time here. You can head straight for Café Demeter for fabulous coffee and a perfect almond croissant. If you haven’t managed to get your car onto the ferry, then both Susie’s Mopeds and Bicycles provide alternative ways to view the rest of the island.
Pelindaba Lavender Farm
The Pelindaba Farm is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in San Juan Islands. You are welcome to walk the fields in this little corner of paradise and there’s an excellent gift shop with wide range of lavender products for culinary use or personal care.
Whale Watching from Lime Kiln Point
Lime Kiln Point is the best place on the islands from which to see the whales. Even without orcas, the views are breathtaking.
At the Roche Harbor, the Madrona Bar & Grill is a great place for frozen margaritas and a pail of prawns. You can visit the Roche Harbor Sculpture Park, which is a great place to visit, as it hosts over 120 pieces by Northwest artists.
San Juan Islands promises to captivate the tourists with its breathtaking beauty thus turning the journey into a fun trip. Enjoy your stay even more with a vacation rental, a place you can call your own for the duration of your stay.
