Cortes Island

About Cortes

Situated at the entrance of Desolation Sound, holding some of the Discovery Island’s most spectacular and abundant landscapes, Cortes Island offers visitors breath-taking beaches, lakes, and forests that make it an ideal destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers. The island’s remoteness, moderate climate, and rich west coast culture bring a special vibe that allows one to truly get away and settle into both the peaceful and wild energies that abound.
