Welcome to Salt Spring Island!

Get away from it all on British Columbia's Salt Spring Island, one of the largest and most well-known of the Pacific Gulf Islands. Located just off the coast of Vancouver Island between Victoria and Nanaimo, Salt Spring Island is situated only a short ferry ride from one of Canada's largest cities, Vancouver, yet visitors to this island paradise feel as though they are worlds away from the hustle of urban life, due in part to the island's lush vegetation and welcoming atmosphere. While on the island, visitors can enjoy a picnic and a day out at one of the many parks and beaches, including Ruckle Provincial Park and Wallace Island Marine Park. Boating, particularly kayaking, is the activity of choice on the island, although there are also plenty of opportunities for cycling, golfing and other outdoor activities. Salt Spring is known for its thriving arts community, and the local talent can be checked out at galleries, markets and performance venues throughout the island.
