WHAT VISITORS SAY
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.
Salt Spring offers plenty for the young and young at heart! First and foremost is the beaches – and beaches are everywhere.
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!)
Always great to be there on a Saturday for the weekly market. It starts its season in early April.

The inaugural 2015 Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) will provide $25,000 in awards to Canadian artists. The prize encourages artists whose practice demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity, resulting in significant work with a real visual impact and depth of meaning.
Artists can submit two- and three-dimensional works in a variety of media. Online entries will be accepted until May 31 – enter work here. A jury of professionals will select 50 artists for an exhibition at historic Mahon Hall on Salt Spring Island.
This exciting endeavour is an initiative of the Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC), which represents the arts on Salt Spring Island. The Finalist exhibition will be held on the island from 25 September through 26 October 2015.
