At 57 square miles, Orcas Island is the largest island and second in population. Known to locals as “the emerald isle”, it is a welcoming mix of lush forest, fascinating fields, stunning shoreline, placid lakes, and boasts the highest mountain in the islands. Orcas is in the shape of a saddlebag hung over the lively village of Eastsound with its historical appeal offering numerous restaurants and cafes, boutiques, galleries, shops, and airstrip. Charming hamlets of Olga, Deer Harbor, Westsound, and Orcas Village dot the island as centers of culture, art, cuisine, and marine activities.
