    Area Data

    Salt Spring Island
    Salt Spring Island is the largest, most populated (over 10,000 residents), and some might say most popular, of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is located between Vancouver Island and the Mainland in the Strait of Georgia alongside its neighbouring islands of Galiano, Pender, Saturna, Mayne and Prevost. The setting is West Coast Canadian; forested islands, wide meadows and beautiful landscapes surrounded by emerald ocean and wonderful vistas. It is the only Southern Gulf Island with a high school and a hospital.


    Salt Spring Island is 27 km (17 miles) long and 14 km (9 miles) wide (74 sq miles), with 133 km (83 miles) of shoreline. The island attracts visitors and prospective residents with its mild climate and annual sunshine in excess of 2,000 hours.


    Artists, farmers, chefs, mechanics, romantics, writers, retirees and dreamers have been drawn to its shores and have recognized it as one of the world's best places to stay. Renowned for its creativity, Salt Spring Island is known as one of North America's best small arts towns and, due to the high demand to live there and limited supply of land offerings, Salt Spring Island holds some of the most desired and priciest real estate on the entire west coast of North America. The famous Saturday Market displays a great cross-section of the high-quality arts and crafts from paintings to pottery, jewellery and clothing, weaving and woodworks.
