The island is mostly forested, although there are some clear cut areas inland. Lakes and large mountainous hills define the geography. Hardy Island sits alongside Nelson Island with Blind Bay in between the two. Logging operations and granite quarries were early features of the island, and many buildings in BC were built out of Nelson Granite including the Parliament Buildings in Victoria.
There were once a few homesteads and small logging operations, most of which are now summer cabins. As a consequence, the permanent population is quite small. One of the most well-known residents was Harry Roberts who retired to the island in 1929. The house he built, Sunray, was a cottage with south-facing walls of glass the stretched out like the rays of a sun. It still stands in a cove at Cape Cockburn.
The island is named for the British naval hero, Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson.
View of a portion of Pender Harbour from the shore at Irvine's Landing Pender Harbour's population is under 3,000, with over 40% of property owners being non-resident (one of them Joni Mitchell, since early 70s). Pender Harbour includes the small villages of Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Irvine's Landing and Kleindale.
Tourism is an important part of the local economy. The area has an arts community and several annual music festivals. It hosts the second-oldest May Day celebration in British Columbia and the biggest and longest-running downhill longboard race in Canada, Attack of Danger Bay.
