Hi / Calendar

    - Welcome to Savary Island     

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Note" New "REAL ESTATE / MAP" ,main feature, Savary map, with listing locations."

I have lived, worked, and played on Savary for decades.

On this site I try to convey the facts and flavours of this Island I call home.

Savary is about 5 miles tip to tip, lies East West, is not very deep, averaging half a mile.

A line from Powell River to Campbell River would run though it.

It is blessed with a very temperate climate, lots of sunshine and surrounded by sandy beaches . Known for white sand, in some location black sand appears ( rumoured to have gold content).

Warm seas in The Summer for swimming.

Since The 1930's Savary Island has been a cottage destination. From 1930 to 1980 The Royal Savary Hotel flourished.

The cottage tradition continues, there are roughly 100 'year rounders', swelling to 3000+ August Long Weekend,

and because more cottages are comfortable and people tend to have less scheduled lives,

Visitors and owners are common throughout the year.

 

( SAVARY ISLAND NEWS , JANUARY 2024 EDITION

In the long dreary days of January, while waiting for the snow to fall, a group of us did the winter head count of “year round residents”. This does not include property owners whose main house is on Savary but who go some place warm for the winter. It’s a surprisingly big number of 78 people we could agree were year round residents.
There were only two at Indian Point, seven at Sunset Trail, and seven on Meadow Lane. We took Herchmer to Leighton as mid island and counted 31. Savary Shores yielded 16 and Mace Point was 15. Giving us the grand total of 78 hardy year rounders.

 Reliable internet & a year round store have contributed to more staying on Island in the off season.
