We’ve got so many good places around Vancouver which make for the perfect Staycations. Or if you’re short on time Daycations. Salt Spring Island is an easy one. Peddling is the best option to keep it cheap and more enjoyable.
The ride is an easy and beautiful 30-40 minutes to Ganges plus you avoid all the ferry traffic. We drove our bikes out to Twassawsen and park the car over night at the skatepark. Its a flat ride out to the ferry terminal and a great way to start the day.
Here is the check list:
– Bike (tire pump recommended as well)
– Ferry reservation (not required)
– Reservation at the Salt Spring Inn (camping would be easy as well)
– Swim wear
– Six pack of Hell’s Gate (not from Salt Spring but that’s where we discovered it)
There are some great places to eat plus there is a Market every Saturday to support the locals.
