Hernando Island, Site 12
Hernando Island, Site 12
Hernando Island is a spectacular 2200 acre island located approximately 80 miles north-west of Vancouver in the northern region of Georgia Strait, just south of Cortes Island and four miles west of the Malaspina Peninsula. Not only is the island an exceptional property, it is situated in one of the most outstanding regions on the southern BC coast, where the Discovery Islands begin and just south of the entrance to world-renowned Desolation Sound. This location is close to communities and service centres such as Lund, Powell River and Campbell River.
The property is one of the most amazing examples of what the BC coast has to offer. Most of the island is beautifully forested in old second growth fir and cedar, with a small mix of other coniferous and deciduous vegetation. A few areas throughout provide some grassland. The topography is very friendly, generally level to moderately sloped and there is a network of roads which meander through the forest across the island.
The shoreline is a diverse mix of everything; from lots of low bank, easy walk-on beachfront to moderately higher bank frontage with in most cases easy beach access along portions of the eastern and southern shoreline and a small portion of the northern shoreline towards the east. The beaches range from powder-white sand to rock and pebble, with massive tidal reefs which extend off the south and eastern shorelines towards Savary Island.
This offering is for a shared interest in Hernando Island. The site provides spectacular eastern and southern exposure, amazing 180° views encompassing the Ragged Islands to the north, sweeping past Lund, Savary Island and Vancouver Island to the south and sun exposure throughout the entire day. This property is an unimproved site on a bluff overlooking the beach.
