Camano Island is a nice place for people of all ages. It makes a great retirement location as well as a safe place for younger kids. Camano has several public and private beaches around every corner. Camano Island includes all types of housing, anything from beach houses, lots with a view, and secluded acreage. If you like to be secluded or just out on a beach Camano is for you. The only disadvantage of Camano Island is the traffic and commute for those working off the island. There is only one way to get on and off the island, a bridge. With the high school being in Stanwood the bridge and areas before it often get extremely congested on school mornings.

Camano Island is a beautiful place to live that is out of the way and secluded. No matter where you go on the island it is always the scenic route being surrounded by the ocean!
Camano Island is very peaceful and beautiful. I am lucky to have grown up here, on the beaches that surround the island. It is perfect for raising a family and is part of a great school district.
