Map of Gulf Islands

Welcome to Gulf Islands!

The Gulf Islands and the Discovery Islands lie in the Georgia Strait, between Vancouver Island and Vancouver's mainland. Encompassing hundreds of little islands, some more populated than others, each as intriguing and magnificent as the next. Idyllic landscapes, wildlife viewing, boating, rocky beaches and astonishing ocean views await visitors on all of the islands, but its their individual character, history and culture that give them their nuances. Salt Spring Island is laden with artists and therefore decorates its street corners with art studios and craft vendors. Rolling Orchards are indicative of the Mayne Island experience, while three provincial parks are a big attraction of Galiano Island. Further north, Quadra Island is the most populated of the Discovery Islands and is deep-rooted in native history. For a quieter experience, visit Gabriola Island, a peaceful community of artists, writers, crafts people and retirees. Pender Island is also known for their quiet community of artists, reflected in studios dotted throughout the area, plus there are many outdoor opportunities, from golf to hiking.
