Malcolm Island's main town, Sointula, was founded more than a century ago by Finnish settlers attempting to create Utopia in the wilderness. The settlement retains its idyllic atmosphere and many of the 800 present day residents live in former settlers' homes. The Sointula Museum provides a fascinating view of this area's history.

Sointula has art galleries and shops and sight-seeing highlights include the views and homes along Kaleva Road, Mitchell Bay, Pulteney Point Lighthouse and the beaches in Bere Point Regional Park and at Malcolm Point. The Beautiful Bay Trail provides 5 km (3 mi.) of wonderful hiking, as does the 3.5 km (2.2 mi.) Mateoja Heritage Trail.

Malcolm Island's harbour berths a commercial fishing fleet, pleasure boats, as well as visitors. There is a harbour facility with showers, laundry and public restrooms. The Island Co-operative Store at the ferry landing sells groceries and dry goods and has the Island's bulletin board. There are a gas station, gift and art shop, bakery and restaurant, garden shop, Credit Union and post office in the town. There are also a variety of accommodations on Malcolm Island.

Opportunities for whale watching and fishing, cycling, kayaking and sightseeing tours are available. The ferry to reach Malcolm Island runs from Port McNeill.
