Beautiful, secluded Lummi Island is a quiet and intimate artist community close to Bellingham, Washington. An incredibly unique place, the island is home to artists and craftspeople, quality dining, and the most unbeatable sea views. The population out of season is less than a thousand, although this considerably increases during summer.
The laid back island has a stunning park and beaches, a tiny schoolhouse and post office, and many farms and wellness centers, as well as a strong emphasis on arts and crafts. A visit here will include a tour of the artists studios, where you can enjoy the photography, sculpture, jewelery, and fine art, all the work of local residents. This is the place to slow down and reconnect with nature. Days here are spent walking, cycling, reading, and just simply being. It’s a small town so follow suit - chill out and enjoy the pace.
Visit Lummi Island in Summer along with the crowds, or come off season for a real taste of island life.
