Cypress Island

 

 
Located just a short boat ride from Anacortes, Cypress Island is a world unto itself...The small community at Strawberry Bay hosts the majority of the island's residents with the remainder of the land managed by the Washington Department of Natural Resources and no longer available for future development.  Freshwater lakes, in the center of the island, offer a wonderful destination for hikers and kayakers enjoy the waterfront parks located on the perimeter.
