Mid-moments in summer-summer are underway. The entire season (late Spring to early Fall) is the very best that the great Pacific Northwest Coast can offer...with authentic summer being its amazing self.
The Southern Gulf Islands are in the heart of some of the best protected boating waters in the world. Sail, power, kayak, paddle board, canoe...delight yourself with the many coves, bays, sweeps of beach, private islands that you will see on your water meanderings of these islands.
Hiking/walking is your pleasure? On Salt Spring? Choose from: Ruckle Park, Mt Erskine Park, Channel Ridge trail system, Mt Maxwell Park, Harrison-Baker-Quarry trail system, Burgoyne Bay Park, Mill Farm Park...all a little different.
Beachcombing is your thing? Vesuvius, Fernwood, Beddis, Drummond Park, Beachside...sunsets from some of these gems! Ocean swimming, too.
Lakes to swim in? Weston, Stowell, Cusheon, St Mary. Ahhhh...the tide is always in.
Yes, it's really true...Salt Spring is captured in 1974 (thank you, Islands Trust). Wherever you stay (hotel, motel, resort, B&B, vacation rental, tenting campground), you will enjoy a yesteryear experience. No "big box" environments here....
A foodie paradise awaits: farmgate stands, super restaurants choosing local ingredients, farmers markets, vineyards/wineries, cideries, olive grove, craft brewery...yes, yes, and more, please!
The rhythm of the Island is grounded in artistic expression. Painters, potters, ceramic artists, musicians, sculptors, fabric artists, writers, dancers, actors...this is an authentic artists community. Check out ArtCraft, ArtSpring, Ganges galleries, studios...be inspired.
Summer-summer is full of delicious offerings to tempt you...catch your vibe! The clock is ticking towards Fall.
