Salt Spring Island is the largest of the Southern Gulf Islands, located off the south-eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Three ferry terminals provide connections to Victoria, Duncan (64 kilometres or 40 miles north of Victoria) and the city of Vancouver.
Salt Spring Island is approximately 18 miles long and from 2 to 10 miles wide. There are almost 500 miles of road winding past lakes, across farmland and through wooded areas with frequent views of the ocean, other islands and the mainland mountains.
The Island has almost 12,000 residents. The largest settlement is Ganges, an unincorporated village with seaplane service to Victoria and Vancouver. In Ganges you will find three banks, a library, post office, fire hall, liquor store, grocery stores, bakeries, department stores, three gas stations, and a full range of professional and trade services, as well as many small shops and galleries.
A large number of artists, entertainers and crafts people have made their homes on the island. Consequently, Salt Spring’s many galleries, together with numerous craft fairs and concerts have given the island a national reputation as an artist’s colony.
