Located just off of Lasqueti Island, Jelina Island is a nature lover’s dream. (Most private islands in BC are, if we’re being honest.) This island’s varied topography provides multiple unique lots to built a residence, including ones that allows for whale-spotting!

At 50 acres, South Octopus Island offers a tremendous amount of space, as well as privacy. The island comes with a pre-existing dock and cabin that’s become a destination for tourists. It’s located on the northeast side of Quadra Island and is a short boat-ride away from Herriott Bay, which has access to a BC Ferries terminal.

Well, which would of these would you choose? Or would you rather go even bigger, like the 340-acre Fawn Bluff Cove?

Nonetheless, these islands seem like a better buy than the most expensive condo in downtown Vancouver, and maybe even some new townhouses.

Let us know what you think!
