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.
