Eating Well:

No surprise here – a true feast for visitors- Salt Spring has some of the best organic and local produce around!  Wild salmon, halibut, mussels and shrimp abound. If you are a vegetarian or prefer meat you'll find that too. You won't find big name fast food here!

Salt Spring is the ultimate informal place.  Dockers and jackets are about as formal as it gets unless you go to Hastings House Resort where a tie may still required for that special dinner.  We also recommend either House Piccolo (award winning Scandinavian food)  or The Harbour House for dinner reservations. Moby's at the marina is also a casual favourite, but it is first come first served.

Rest, relax, and plan your return.
 Experience firsthand why people who originally made this a vacation destination have been won over by its charm and made it the destination of a lifetime.
