have lived , worked and played on Savary for decades.

On this site I try to convey the facts and flavours of this Island , I call home.

Savary is about 5 miles tip to tip , lies East West, is not very deep, averaging half a mile.

A line from Powell River to Campbell River would run though it.

It is blessed with a very temperate climate, lots of sunshine and surrounded by sandy beaches .

Since The 1930s, Savary has been a cottage destination. From 1930 to 1980 The Royal Savary Hotel flourished.

The cottage tradition continues, there are roughly 100 'year rounders' and because more cottages are comfortable and people tend to have more time.

Visitors and owners are common throughout the year.

 

I can be contacted by e mail,

   CURRENT FIRE REGULATIONS

NO Backyard Burns. NO Burn Barrels.

NO Fireworks.

Camp fires are allowed solely for the purpose of cooking or providing warmth.

Material piled no larger than 0.5 metre (20 in.) high and 0.5 m (20 in.) in diameter. Must be a minimum of 3 m (10 ft) from any combustible materials.

Every person who ignites or maintains any outdoor re MUST ensure that the re is under control at all times, is supervised by a person of at least 16 years old, and is immediately adjacent to a suf cient supply of water or other substance that could extinguish the re. Even if a person has permission to burn, burning without due care could be the start of a forest re. If a re does get out of control, and the Fire Dept or BC Wild Fire Service is called in, the persons doing the burning may be responsible for fire fighting and associated costs. Fires should never take place during windy conditions because flying sparks and embers could ignite adjacent combustibles. Before lighting a fire always check the wind forecast.
