Things to remember when visiting Denman Island 

  • TIP#1: With the end of summer, many business hours are reduced. Always pre-confirm business hours!
  • TIP#2: A dry summer has affected the water supply. We recommend you bring water or buy it at the General Store.
  • TIP#3: Please tread lightly on our rural Island. Drive the speed limit, take trash with you, and respect your neighbours.
