"More sunshine than the Okanagan, a mere 80 centimetres of rain a year and spring flowers in February are just a few of the reasons why the southern Gulf Islands are referred to as Canada's Hawaii." -Exploring The Best
The Mayne Island Resort is nestled at the far edge of a cliffside meadow and is surrounded by stands of mature fir, pine and arbutus trees. This provides a spectacular view of Bennett Bay and the National Heritage Park of Campbell Point and beyond.
Landscaping and gardens will reflect this natural beauty by incorporating some of the plants indigenous to Mayne Island. Complementing these plantings will be species that local gardeners have found to thrive in the San Juan archipelago environment. A certified landscape architect has helped us design gardens that are beautiful, as well as drought resistant.
Over 250 different wild flowers grow and flourish on Mayne Island, from Blue-eyed Marys to rare orchids, common daisies, wild native roses and bluebells, brought to the island by early settlers.
