Lummi Island, located at the southwest corner of Whatcom, is a quaint, historic little island to adventure to when living or visiting Bellingham or Whatcom County. With just a short ferry ride over to Lummi Island, you have a variety of events, activities, a thriving art community and beautiful places to explore.
We love to take a little two to three day trip over to Lummi to hike, explore the beautiful shores and taste a little wine.
Whether your a Washington native, visiting, or just moving to the area, Lummi Island is a great relaxing getaway with shorelines to explore and naps to take. There are not bars, clubs, shopping extravaganzas, or tons of restaurants, but there are friendly people and a quiet paradise to take advantage of.
