Because of its resort heritage and seclusion thanks to one road accessing the 80-acre neighborhood, Shangri-La Shores has an island-getaway feel with numerous homes that dot the shore or are tucked away in the woods. Residents enjoy convenient access to the highway and quick drives to communities north and south.

What was at one time fishing and vacation resort nestled on the eastern shores of Whidbey Island between Coupeville and Greenbank, Shangri-La Shores retains its character as an island getaway thanks to having one road access the neighborhoo as well as a private pier, boat launch and beach that is home to some great crabbing. Shangri-La near the Navy’s Outlying Field, located off Highway 20 on central Whidbey Island. Outlying Field is a training area for jet pilots who practice touch-and-go landings. The Navy makes efforts to inform residents about upcoming training exercises.
Shangri-La Shores is located between two historic communities – the Town of Coupeville and Greenbank Farm. Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, and its recreational opportunities, is west of Shangri-La Shores as is Outlying Field and the ferry sailing from Keystone Harbor to Port Townsend. Freeland, Langley and Clinton, which has a ferry connecting to Mukilteo, is further south.
