    Experience an idyllic lifestyle on Salt Spring Island

    Once little more than a weekend getaway destination for Vancouverites, Salt Spring Island is now a hotspot for visitors from around the world. Despite boasting a somewhat chilled-out vibe, this Gulf Island vacation spot still manages to pack a punch. Travelers can’t help but be enthralled by the island’s natural beauty, perhaps most evident at the Ruckle and Mt Maxwell Provincial Parks, and by its tempting foodie scene, its artistic flair, and its seemingly endless choice of outdoor adventures. Salt Spring Island vacation rentals are the perfect way to experience all that this island has to offer.

    Salt Spring Island is a great place to be outdoors

    The great outdoors has never looked as good. Take things at a leisurely pace on the island’s beaches where, after soaking up the sun, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets before heading back to the comfort of your Salt Spring Island vacation rental. Yoga in the park is another popular pastime as are kayak excursions in the calm waters that surround Ganges Marina. Pick up the pace by taking on a stretch of 100 kilometers plus of trails on the island. Options range from the gentle flats at Duck Creek Park to the strenuous terrain of the Burgoyne Bay - Boulder Field Trail.

    Enjoy the local flavors on Salt Spring Island

    Leave the hustle and bustle of big city theme parks behind as you immerse yourself instead in a world where artisan studios, eclectic outdoor sculptures, and bountiful farmers’ markets take center stage. Evenings equal the chance to enjoy live entertainment in a woodsy cabin and to delve into the foodie scene for a delicious dinner. From humble farm stands touting local produce to quaint cafés serving up authentic farm-to-table fare, there’s something to suit every appetite.

    Heavenly summers and exciting winters on Salt Spring Island

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, summers on Salt Spring Island are popular. Temperatures in the high 80s in July and August, combined with minimal rain and festivals such as Salt Spring Canada Day, mean that competition for Salt Spring Island vacation rentals can be steep. During spring and fall, demand is just a little less but picks up in December when the island hosts a variety of Christmas craft fairs as well as foodie events such as the Glowtini Contest and the ever-popular Chili Cook-Off. If you do travel over Christmas, be sure to catch the colorful Santa Ship arrive at Ganges Marina.

    Discover a diverse landscape on Salt Spring Island

    The island’s beaches range from the popular swimming beach at Vesuvius Bay to the driftwood-strewn stretch of rocky coastline at Drummond Park. Parks also play a starring role here, with the variety of nature trails, soaring cliffs, and abundant marine life making Ruckle Park one of the landscape’s hot spots. Climbing a mountain is also on the cards. Many visitors have enjoyed the climb through lush forest to the top of Mount Erskine to be rewarded with what is arguably the best view of the island.
