Vacationing in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington? There's just nothing better. Our quiet lifestyle, the views, the whales, the golfing, the boating, the theatre, and best of all - the weather.
"Sunny San Juans" is how many people refer to our area, and with good reason. Although we are located near Puget Sound in Western Washington, which receives anywhere from 20 to 50 inches of rain per year, the San Juan Islands are unique in that, they occupy an area known as the "banana belt" or the "rain shadow of the Olympics".
Through a combination of meterological phenomena, air blowing inland from the Pacific Ocean from the southwest loses most of its moisture on the western slopes of the Olympic Mountains, where the annual rainfall can be as high as 200 inches per year. By the time the air reaches us, most of the moisture is gone and we end up receiving about 20 to 25 inches per year. San Juan Island enjoys an average of 247 days of sunshine per year.
In addition to the island's weather and natural beauty, there are plenty of activities including a 9-hole golf course, acres of parks and miles of walking trails, marinas, restaurants, and shopping. Not without mention, the waters of the Puget Sound offer extraordinary scenery for kayaking, whale watching,diving and boating.
