About Salt Spring Island

What is it about Salt Spring Island that draws so many people to this small community every year? The only people who ask that are people who haven’t been here yet. We all have our own reasons why we love this place so much. Some come here for it’s natural beauty, others for adventure, some come here because of the people. Some just want to get away from it all. On any given day you’ll meet someone from someplace far away. What’s not to like?

It’s 72 square miles seems small on a map but it’s easy to forget you’re on an island when you’re here. There are 2 large size grocery stores, a good sized high school, and plenty of amenities to keep your family satisfied. Most of us rarely bother to even leave the island. There are numerous lakes on the island which never freeze and offer plenty of summer fun. Snow is as rare as mosquitoes around here. There are no predators to worry about, unless you count the odd raccoon.

From April to October you can enjoy our Saturday Market in Centennial Park. This event attracts people from all over the place. Salt Spring Gelato is there now too! Take a studio tour, check out some cool places to eat and shop or just relax. Don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to pick up a brochure on homes for sale. It happens.
