Bayview is an unincorporated community centered at the intersection of State Route 525 and Bayview Road on Whidbey Island in Island County, Washington, United States.
It is approximately 5 miles (8 km) west of the town of Clinton, and 4 miles (6 km) south of the city of Langley.
Bayview is a crossroads of commerce on the Southend of the island, as it is centrally located, compared to the other three communities. As such, it is home to a hardware store, a craft store, a nursery, a grocery store, an alternative grocery store, and several restaurants. One gas station, a Valero, sits by the highway. Bayview is also the home of the South Whidbey Seniors' Center, Island County Fire District 3, and Whidbey Telecom. Bayview Corner is a collection of older buildings renovated in the early part of the 21st Century to house an art gallery, nursery, cafes and specialty shops. A farmers' market operates here during the summer months. Across Bayview Road from this area is a renovated Sears kit house. This house was originally built in Greenbank, and for approximately 90 years it occupied a prominent corner at Hwy 525 & Wonn Road on the Greenbank Farm, before being displaced by a highway re-alignment project. It was later renovated and moved to Bayview. The Bayview Alternative School is across Bayview Rd. from Bayview Corner, and in the past, the building was a K-12 school, and a branch of Skagit Valley College.
Just south of the commercial area on Bayview Road is one of Whidbey Island's off-leash dog parks, Marguerite Brons Memorial Off-Leash Park.
Bayview is not to be confused with Bay View, located on the mainland in Skagit County.
