Make A Holiday Rental House in San Juan Islands, USA, Your Home Away From Home

The archipelago of the San Juan Islands sounds as though it should be a part of Costa Rica, or some other Spanish speaking nation, however, they are actually just off the coast of Washington state, in north-western USA. This is very close to the border with Canada. If you love the idea of a quiet and restful vacation, spent off the beaten track and in an immensely beautiful part of North America, then holidays in the San Juan islands are definitely for you. The self catering accommodation in this part of the United States will always come at a very high standard, offering everything you could possibly need for a perfect break away.

Things to Do on Holiday in San Juan Islands, USA

The types of activities that are available to you during your holidays in the San Juan islands will make for a very different vacation indeed. One of the main islands within the archipelago is called ‘Orcas Island’ and this is for very good reason: it is possible to catch sight of these killers of the sea on specialised whale watching excursions. It is also possible to try your hand at kayaking and other water-based activities include swimming, snorkelling and diving. The islands are actually quite hilly and make for ideal rambling opportunities.

Places to Visit on Holiday in San Juan Islands, USA

The main reason for taking your holidays in the San Juan Islands will be to take advantage of an entirely different destination, one that is far away from the rat race and offers an altogether slower pace of life. The main islands of the archipelago are served by Washington State Ferries and it is possible to explore several during your time in the area. The islands to consider are San Juan Island, Orcas Island, Shaw Island, Lopez Island and these are connected with the mainland at Anacortes. You will even be able to explore further north where you will soon reach Vancouver Island and British Colombia, in Canada. The largest city of Washington State - Seattle - lies 60 miles south of the San Juan Islands and is well worth a visit whilst you’re here.

Weather in San Juan Islands, USA

The weather for your holidays in the San Juan Islands is surprisingly similar to that of western Scotland. This means that temperatures during the peak summer months are likely to reach around 21 degrees Celsius. The winters are not as extreme as other parts of the northern USA, with averages around the mid to high single digits degrees. Snow is not as frequent here either, although is definitely more commonplace on the higher elevations of the islands.

Travel to San Juan Islands, USA

Perhaps the best idea for onward travel to your self catering accommodation in the San Juan Islands is to catch your main flight to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) with British Airways from London Heathrow (LHR). Then, you can either drive and use the convenient ferry services to your island, or you can investigate the possibility of a short flight to the San Juan Islands from Seattle.
