Keats Island Professional Review and Guide
"If you are approaching Howe Sound from Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, exploring Keats Island is your best option for a day trip. Named after Admiral Sir Richard Goodwin Keats, a compatriot of Viscount Nelson, the island has many faces. Although much of the north coast is steep and inhospitable, Plumper Cove Provincial Marine Park and the community at Eastbourne show its more friendly side. Nestled among the coastal mountains, speckled with summer homes and flanked by the bright lights of Vancouver, West Vancouver and Gibsons, Howe Sound blends the beauty of the Gulf Islands with the rugged North Coast and places it all invitingly on our doorstep. It is a unique slice of West Coast life well worth exploring."
