Hornby Island is a short ferry ride from Denman Island and is home to artists and artisans. There are a variety of studios and galleries on the island and a number of restaurants and shops.

Also known for its beautiful beaches and hiking trails. Helliwell Provincial Park provides a day-use only park named for the Helliwell family who originally donated the land. It has a 5 km (3 mi.) walk along the spectacular bluff and the old -growth forest of firs, pines and oaks. Visitors are asked to keep dogs under control so as not to disturb nesting cormorants. In the spring, visitors may see sea lions and rare wildflowers in this unique setting.
