Shaw Island is the smallest and least populated ferry-served island in the San Juans. What it lacks in size and population it makes up for with it's natural island beauty and relaxing environment.

The only commercial enterprise on Shaw Island is the General Store at the ferry landing. The General Store offers gift items, food and sundries and a gas pump. If you plan on staying overnight, make sure you've be able to secure one of a dozen campsites available at the county park off Indian Cove.

In addition to the General Store, the ferry landing hosts the island's post office and a small marina, with a few spots for overnight moorage. Shaw Island County Park offers the only stretch of beach open to the public, the park's campsites are thickly wooded and directly overlook Indian Cove and Canoe Island. Campsites are $10 a night and also have a day use area for picnickers. At high tide a small boat ramp is useable.

While you are on your way through the island stop and take a break at the figure eight cross at Blind Bay Road and Broken Point Road. On one corner you'll find the Shaw Island School District's "little red schoolhouse." The main building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The other two Buildings on the other side of the road are the Shaw Island Library and Historical Society. The library, designed by Shaw Island architect and artist Malcolm Cameron, is supported entirely by the island's residents. The library sometimes hosts readings by area writers. The museum, open when the library is open, contains several historical items and documents donated by Shaw Island families.
