At approximately 55 miles long and 12 miles at its widest, Whidbey Island is the largest island in Island County, Washington. It's a popular tourist destination with spectacular views of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, interesting historic monuments, and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. Whether you stay in a secluded countryside setting or choose Whidbey Island hotels in one of the handful of delightful cities, towns, and villages that dot its mostly rural landscape, you'll discover the many treasures of this island at the edge of Puget Sound.
The closest major airport to Whidbey Island is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, approximately 50 miles to the south. A local shuttle company offers nine trips between the island and the airport every day. It's also possible to use public transportation, but you should expect to take at least four different routes combining Community Transit, Sound Transit, Island Transit, and Washington State Ferries services. The most convenient option for many visitors is a car rental through one of more than a dozen rental companies based at the airport. Before you head north to hotels on Whidbey Island, you might want to spend a day or more sightseeing in Seattle. Look into cheap hotels in Seattle if you want extra time to see its attractions, such as the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and Waterfront Park. Reach the island and spend some time in Oak Harbor, its largest town. You could go boating or sailing around the harbor, along the coast, or into the San Juan Islands. If you arranged Whidbey Island car rentals, take a drive over Deception Pass Bridge, a National Historic Landmark that links Oak Harbor with neighboring Fidalgo Island. Whidbey Island is also home to Coupeville, the second-oldest town in Washington. Attractions there include historic pioneer homes, beaches, and scenic trails.
