Welcome to what the Washington Post has called “the coolest island in Canada.” Life on the most populated (just over 10,000 full-time residents) of the Gulf Islands is centred in Ganges Village, a bustling harbour town known for its shops, galleries, restaurants and a legendary Saturday market where everything is made, baked or grown on Salt Spring Island. Peace and pastoral quiet is the norm elsewhere on this postcard-scenic refuge. Hike Mount Maxwell’s cli side trail, picnic at Beddis Beach, dine by the water in Fulford Harbour and tour the island on two wheels.

Visit spas, yoga studios and a wellness centre for spiritual rejuvenation on this “healing island.” Drop into the Visitor Centre (open year-round) for details on the North End and South End loop studio tours. Then relax and stay awhile in a resort, one of dozens of B&Bs or after pitching a tent oceanside near Ruckle Heritage Farm, BC’s oldest working farm. Now renowned as an unparalleled foodie and boutique shopping destination, Salt Spring can be reached via three ferry terminals, float planes and after sailing here by pleasureboat and tying up in one of 300 marina slips.
