Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring, which is the largest and most populated of the Southern Gulf Islands, is serviced by three ferry terminals at Vesuvius, Fulford and Long Harbour.
Located between Vancouver Island and the mainland in the Strait of Georgia alongside its neighbouring islands of Galiano, Pender, Saturna, Mayne and Prevost, the island is famous for sunshine, scenery and local art.
The accommodations on Salt Spring Island range from quaint cabins to luxurious bed & breakfasts to motels and hotels. You will also find an assortment of dining options, specialty food producers, bakeries, coffee shops and fresh-picked organic produce at the Saturday farmers' market, all of which reflect the island's passion for creature comforts.
Galleries and artisan studios on the island offer everything from paintings, sculptures, and prints to weaving, pottery, stained glass, basketry and jewellery. Whether you are looking for gentle outdoor activities or spa treatments or you plan to simply absorb the stunning scenery for a few days, it’s the perfect place to restore your personal balance.Read more about Salt Spring Island
