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 that 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.
Egmont is the trailhead for Skookumchuck Provincial Park and features two modern marinas offering moorage and supplies for yachts and floatplanes. Boat Charters are available in Egmont and water taxi service can be arranged to the many natural attractions in the area.
