Getting to Know the Area

Welcome to Whidbey Island, the largest island in Washington state and one of the nine Puget Sound islands that make up the county. Camano Island is the second-largest island inside the county line, followed by the smaller Baby, Ben Ure, Deception, Kalamut, Minor, Smith and Strawberry islands. The county is more liquid than solid: 309 square miles of water vs. 208 square miles of land, says the U.S. Census. By land area, it’s Washington’s next-to-smallest county, eclipsing only San Juan County, a similar island fastness to the north, but one having only 174 square miles of land.


A few annual events include the Island Shakespeare Festival, the Tour de Whidbey bike race, September’s Whidbey Island Kite Festival, and Langley’s Mystery Weekend, for which the town of Langley transforms itself into the setting for a fictional murder mystery romp.
