Denman Island is one of the Northern Gulf Islands in the Comox-Strathcona Regional District of
British Columbia, Canada, and is home to a small community of 1,016 year-round residents (2001 census).
Regular ferry service links Denman Island to both Hornby Island from Gravelly Bay on the East side of
Denman and Vancouver Island at Buckley Bay on the West side.
Denman Island has long been a haven for people escaping from busy urban centers.
The island's "Downtown" consists of one general store (containing the post office, gas station
and government liquor store), a natural foods store, hardware store, bookstore, craft stores, a bakery/cafe,
a real estate office, two community halls, a community school, and the museum.
It is famous for its summer dances, the Martini Lounge Cabaret, quiet roads, beautiful scenery and tolerant lifestyle.
Bananarchy was founded on Denman Island. Many artists have made Denman Island their home for decades,
and as a result, the local community has a thriving artistic community.
The island has a land area of 51.03 km² (19.7 sq mi). It is close to the same size and shape as Manhattan Island,
with significantly less population.
Denman and Hornby Islands are two outposts that have been described, with some justification,
as the "undiscovered Gulf Islands".
Big-name celebrities have recently bought property here, complementing a population made up of artists,
craftspeople and a laid-back (if wary) mishmash of alternative types.
