About The San Juan Islands

The San Juan Islands are accessible to the public by water and air. The most common means of travel is by Washington State Ferry. See our directions page (click here) for more information.

On the east side of San Juan Island is the town of Friday Harbor, also the San Juan County Seat. Friday Harbor, a historic seaport, rises from the ferry landing and public marina where it is an easy stroll to the town's docks, parks, restaurants, shops, galleries, lodging facilities and business district.

On the north end of San Juan Island is another port of entry known as Roche Harbor Village. It is listed on the National Register of Historical Sites and is approximately ten miles from Friday Harbor. Roche Harbor has beautiful Victorian gardens, an airstrip, marina, lodging, grocery store, restaurants, sculpture park, shopping, water activities and local artists booths.

While visiting San Juan Island be sure to make a trip to one of our many beaches, hiking trails and great parks. For a complete list of parks click here.
