Salt Spring Island Community Guide

Welcome to Salt Spring Island, one of the largest of the Gulf Islands located between the mainland and Vancouver Island. Salt Spring Island is one of the most visited and populous Southern Gulf Islands and it’s a vibrant arts community of artists and musicians who make their home there year-round and you can visit their studios and see their creations at the Saturday Market. It is a popular vacation home location for city folks from Vancouver, Victoria and Washington State who are drawn to both the island’s charm of rustic cabins to the luxury of waterfront estates.
