San Juan Islands in the News


tripadvisorA decade ago, when someone mentioned San Juan Islands, people thought Puerto Rico. But that has changed. In recent months, our 172 island archipelago, located on the northwestern most corner of the continental US, has been in the international spotlight.

We are very proud and wanted to share these accolades. We also are appreciative to all those that visited and voted San Juan Island, TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice. We are in some prestigious company.

• Lonely Planet’s list of Top 10 U.S. Destinations for 2013

• lists the San Juan Islands as the 10 greatest US adventure vacations

• TripAdvisor’s acclaim for San Juan Island as “The Best Island in America.”

• TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Award for San Juan Island as the fourth-best island in the world (behind Ambergris Cay in Belize, St. John in the Virgin Islands, and Bora Bora).

On March 25, 2013, right the heels of all this press, Barack Obama signed an executive order designating San Juan Islands as a National Monument. This will give permanent protection to treasured spots in the archipelago, primarily 1,000 acres of island sites managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
