Orcas Island Waterfront Real Estate

Orcas Island is a lush, green paradise that locals refer to as the “gem of the San Juans.” Located in the San Juan archipelago off the northern Washington coast accessible by ferry from Anacortes, this horseshoe-shaped isle is the largest of the islands at about 57 square miles. Not only do visitors and residents enjoy breathtaking water views, but some fabulous hiking opportunities at Mount Constitution, the tallest mountain in the islands, set within Moran State Park. The park hosts 38 miles of scenic trails, including one that will take you to the highest point at 2,409 feet above sea level for incredible panoramic views of the island-filled waters and snow-capped Mount Baker.

Orcas Island Waterfront Real Estate

Orcas Island waterfront real estate owners may be able to paddle out onto the bay right from home, though there are two large bays, East Sound and West Sound that offer protected deep water moorage for boaters. Private, direct access to the water is typically the main motivator for buyers looking for Orcas Island waterfront property, though the specific destination depends on the activities you plan to enjoy. If you’re an avid boater, you probably want a place on the water that’s deep enough for your boat, but if you’re hoping to swim out into a lake on a hot summer’s day, lakeshore access with a dock may be ideal. Another factor to consider is the direction you’ll be facing, if sunsets are you’re thing, west-facing waterfront homes will allow you to enjoy them in their full glory, while east- facing waterfront is ideal for sipping your morning coffee as you watch the sun come up. South-facing homes typically get lots of light throughout the day, but they tend to experience more of an impact from the weather.

Orcas Island waterfront real estate is hard to beat when it comes to island living in the Pacific Northwest, with some of the best views around. If you find a property with lots of water frontage, you’ll enjoy plenty of privacy too.
