Sauvie Island is the largest island in the Columbia River. It is reached by a single bridge and is a pastoral oasis just minutes from both downtown Portland and the Hillsboro technology and sports apparel corridor (Nike and Intel both have offices here). Over 1 million people visit the island every year to take advantage of the tranquility and natural beauty. The island is known for farmlands, a wildlife refuge, and quiet sandy beaches.
