Cycle past Shark Reef, the historic Richardson Village site, and Agate Beach, experiencing the rolling farmland, rich history, and rugged coast of the south half of Lopez Island. Perhaps more than anyplace else on the main islands of the San Juan archipelago, the south end of Lopez Island feels far removed and perhaps a few steps back in time from the buzz of the nearby mainland cities. Over forty-five farms on Lopez Island derive income from a variety of goods, from fruit to livestock, many of them spread out over the 100-foot-high plateau on the south end of the island. Except for one small store, you’ll find a quiet rural life here.
