Salt Spring is located between Vancouver Island and the Mainland in the Strait of Georgia alongside its neighbouring islands of Galiano, Pender, Saturna, Maine and Prevost.
Artists, farmers, chefs, mechanics, romantics, writers, retirees and dreamers have been drawn to its shores and have recognized it as one of the world’s best places to stay.
One of our beautiful and famous seaside villages. The largest, Ganges, located in the centre of the island. It is a focal point for arts, restaurants and pubs, unique shops and book stores and our spectacular outdoor Saturday craft market. Our local marinas attract pleasure boaters, commercial and sports fishermen.
