Explore the Southern Gulf Islands, BC

Winter is a great time to visit the Southern Gulf Islands . Nestled between Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Mainland, the Southern Gulf Islands are a perfect getaway for outdoor adventure, farm-fresh food and drink, arts and culture entertainment and wellness retreats. Long walks in the woods and along beaches make for memorable family time or for romantic couple’s escapes. And at the end of the day, tuck into one of our many places to stay on our islands in front of a fire and a warm embrace!

The Southern Gulf Islands are recognized as a world-classed destination to visit, including being recently featured in the New York Times as one of the “52 Places to go in 2016”. Why not spend some time on neighbouring islands, have some island hopping fun and find out what all of the fuss is about!
