Salt Spring Island
The Crowning Jewel of the Salish Sea
A sparkle of diamonds paves the borders of Salt Spring as waves gently lap the shore. Sailboats ride the wind while fish boats’ slow passage draw the attention of gulls. On shore, gardeners soak up the early sun and children run and shout with team spirit.
In addition, hiking trails of various levels meander through spectacular forests and along ocean shores. Four lakes offer public access for swimming and non-motorized watercraft, while Rainbow Road indoor pool offers swim and recreational programs. Ruckle Provincial Park hugs the ocean with a working heritage farm, camping, access for fishing, kayaking, hiking trails and more.
Together with Artspring Theatre, four community halls and various schools & churches – music, drama, educational and social justice events are offered by all. Salt Spring Island is inclusive and caring, and welcomes all to share the beauty of this place.
