TERVETULOA – WELCOME! 

Design Your Own Adventure

Malcolm Island has little in the way of pre-programmed tourist attractions, but you can design your own adventure. Wander the town’s streets, grab a coffee, visit the museum or an art studio, enjoy a halibut burger at the harbour or take one of our day hikes. The miles of accessible beach and long stretches of flat, quiet roads make our island the perfect spot for beachcombing and bike riding. Malcolm Island is the place for people who want to explore for themselves. It offers a safe friendly environment for outdoor activities, as well as plenty of solitude for unwinding.

Eccentricities of Sointula

Things you only know if you live here… The ferry line-up is along First Street. The 7:55am ferry leaves at 7:20am on Sundays. The Co-op store is closed Sundays & Mondays, but the Co-op Gas Station is open every day. Local dogs (and cats) have the right-of-way; if you come across one sleeping on the road, let it sleep and go around. You can make an appointment to see the museum in the off season.

Sointula’s folklore is rich with tales of local eccentrics. Some are still living among us today.
