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 square 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.


Fulford Village
Fulford Village is a residential community on the southern end of Salt Spring Island and about a 20 minute drive south of Ganges Village. Although Ganges Village is bigger, Fulford has its own distinct charms. In Fulford you'll find restaurants, coffee bars, a gas station, grocery store, bakery, church, post office, museum and a variety of interesting shops and artist studios. It is also home to a BC Ferries terminal with sailings to Swartz Bay in Victoria. Nearby there is the Fulford Pub, two wineries and several Bed & Breakfast establishments.


Right across the road from the harbour is the Fulford Inn, which is a perfect place to stop while touring the southern half of the Island. The Inn is minutes away from the Fulford ferry terminal and offers home cooked meals, as well as local and domestic beer. Access to the beach at Drummond Park is about a 20 minute walk from the Inn.


For the outdoor enthusiasts, Fulford dock and Drummond Park are good launch sites for kayakers to go exploring Russell Island or Princess Margaret Island, which has wonderful wilderness campsites. Both islands are a part of the Gulf Islands National Park. Not far from the Village is a trail that takes you up Reginald Hill for a spectacular view of the harbour and Mount Maxwell in the distance. Just outside of the Village is Ruckle Provincial Park, which is one of the largest provincial campgrounds in the Gulf Islands, and Burgoyne Bay Provincial Park, where you can walk the 2 km round trip Heritage Home Site Trail. Both parks offer amazing views and diverse vegetation to explore.

History :

The name Salt Spring refers to a group of brine pools at the north end of the island. The First Nations people called it Klaathem. The first group of non-aboriginal settlers arrived in 1859. Fruit growing, dairy farming and logging were the mainstays of the local economy. One successful enterprise was the Salt Spring Island Creamery, which produced prize-winning butter from 1904-1957. Ferry service began in 1930 when the 20-car Cy Peck began a regular run between Salt Spring Island and Swartz Bay.


Fulford Harbour was named after Captain John Fulford, who was the commanding officer of the HMS Ganges, the flagship of the Royal Navy’s Pacific Station between 1857 and 1860. The HMS Ganges was built in 1821 and was the last British sailing battleship commissioned for duty in foreign waters.
