More about the areas accommodations and tourism
Today Salt Spring is home to many. This includes retired people from all over the world who seek the quiet life and warm winters, and artisans who enjoy the creative environment on the island, fostered by the many galleries and artists.
Saltspring Island, in the Capital Regional District is the most densely populated of the Gulf Islands and is also home to the biggest Gulf Island provincial campground, Ruckle Provincial Park. The island's shoreline is varied and beautiful, offering rocky shores, tidal pools to explore, shell beaches for beachcombing, and a wide variety of sandy beaches. Of the 22 ocean beaches, 4 are designated for swimming. Many of the beaches which developed thousands of years ago now lie well above sea level and have left Saltspring Island with thick deposits of sand which is often gravelly. Finer-textured soils are more scattered, except in the Fulford Valley where they are dominant. The rugged and mountainous southern end of the island is dominated by Mount Tuam and Mount Bruce, separated from the equally mountainous mid-island region by the Fulford Valley, located between Fulford Harbour and Burgoyne Bay. The north end of the island has a lower elevation, with rolling pastures, deciduous forests and the majority of residential developments, mainly around the village of Ganges.
