    Free-spirited Fulford Harbour

    Known for its free-spirited locals, Fulford Harbour is a laidback village on the southern tip of Salt Spring Island. It sits on a natural harbor and is home to one of Salt Spring's 3 ferry terminals. This makes it a great starting point for island escapes. Thanks to an eclectic population of artists, millionaires and neo-hippies it's often hailed as the "Coolest Island in Canada". Base yourself at a Fulford Harbour vacation rentals property and you'll quickly find yourself immersed in a tight-knit community of locals who've swapped the rat race for a grassroots lifestyle on Salt Spring Island.

    Bite into Fulford Harbour's island-inspired fare

    You'll find most of the action along the edge of the harbor, where historic cottages house a mix of artisanal shops, galleries and cafes. From hand-carved homewares and tie-dyed clothing to gourmet jams and freshly baked treats, every store champions a local approach. Venture beyond the village and you'll find a cornucopia of roadside farm stands hawking everything from organic vegetables and free-range eggs to local honey and freshly cut flowers. With well-equipped kitchens, Fulford Harbour vacation rentals make it easy to stock up on local produce and prepare your own island-inspired meals.

    Beachcombing in Fulford Harbour

    On Salt Spring Island, Mother Nature trumps big-ticket attractions. Fulford Harbour is at the doorstep of Ruckle Provincial Park, which boasts over 4 miles of untouched shoreline. You can explore the forested trails that wind through the park, hike up Bruce Peak or get behind the wheel and cruise along the scenic Salt Spring Island South End Route. After a day of sightseeing, there's nothing better than a glass of local BC beer at the lively Fulford Inn. Or, even better, sunset drinks on the deck of your Fulford Harbour vacation rentals cottage.

    Salt Spring summers in Fulford Harbour

    Salt Spring's population soars over the summer, when the island lures a stream of vacationers, boaters and seasonal residents. Civic holidays, such as Canada Day and BC Day, are eternally popular with locals and always fill up fast. Summer weekends culminate with the island's famous open-air Saturday Market, which lives by a "Make It, Bake It, Grow It" motto. Arrive early, as goodies sell out fast. If you're looking for laidback vibes, visit in spring or fall. Crowds taper off and there's every chance of gorgeous weather.
