Salt Spring Island

The busiest and most developed of the Southern Gulf Islands, Salt Spring has a reputation for palatial vacation homes, but it's also lined with artist studios and artisan food-and-drink producers who welcome visitors. Well worth a long weekend visit, the heart of the community is Ganges, home of Salt Spring's awesome summer market.
