Salt Spring Island: The 2 Hour Getaway

May 26th, 2014|0 Comments

In the next installment of our Getaway series, we’re going to stay within BC but take you a little bit further away from Bowen Island. Tucked in between ......


One nice thing about Salt Spring and the Gulf Islands is that the rainshadow microclimate means they tend to be warmer and dryer in the spring than the mainland or even the main Island.
Borchard, Visitor
Salt Spring offers plenty for the young and young at heart! First and foremost is the beaches – and beaches are everywhere.
FWN, Visitor
Everything from little cozy inns or private B&Bs (I stayed in a really nice private B&B on the island with even it’s own private hot tub on the ocean!)
Utcrayons, Visitor
Always great to be there on a Saturday for the weekly market. It starts its season in early April.
