This Secret White Sand Island In BC Looks Like A Tropical Paradise

Travel & Outdoors
Calvert Island

Vacant stretches of glistening white sand beaches and diverse wildlife are just a couple of feature that draw people to this unique oasis.

Although it looks like a Caribbean paradise, Calvert Island is actually located 100 km north of the town of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island. Practically uninhabited, with relatively calm oceanic waters, the island is purely tranquil. What’s more, it affords world class scuba diving in Carrington Reef.

While breathtaking, the 155 acreage isalnd  is also home to myriad wildlife. The diversity of habitats within Calvert Island Conservancy include numerous species from limpids and sea urchins to wolves, deer and black bears. Indeed, this natural oasis is pristine and fairly untouched, with very little pollution.

Another amazing fact about the island is that it contains an incredible archaeological find. Two fossilized footprints were found discovered that are thought to be the oldest known evidence of human habitation in North America; carbon-dating takes them back 13,200 years.

Calvert Island Activities

Although the island is gorgeous on land, it is even more amazing in the water. The Conservancy area is ideal for exploration by experienced sea kayakers, and the water is dazzling. In addition, visitors to the island enjoy various activities including boating, whale watching, angling, scuba diving, hiking, wilderness camping, and advanced sea kayaking.

Even more astonishing? This island is for sale! That’s right: the entire island can be yours for a cool $18 million. If you are interested in claiming this rare and incredible property, check out the listing here.
