Visiting Salt Spring? >
This itinerary was submitted by Candice Cole, Front Manager at Rock Salt Restaurant & Cafe who commutes to work in the south end of Salt Spring on her fancy little red scooter.
My itinerary begins right in Fulford Harbour. Although some might disagree, you don’t have to go all the way into Ganges to enjoy a day on Salt Spring especially if you’re pressed for time! You won’t even need to fuel up. I recommend a small map for ease, but South Enders are super friendly!
Stop #1- Rock Salt Restaurant and Cafe
Pop into this super friendly joint for a latte & one of their homemade sweet and sticky cinnamon buns or chocolate chip cookies! Get their early, as they go quickly. It’s a great way to start your day.
Stop #2- Morningside Organic Bakery – 107 Morningside Road
Delicious breads made with organic goodness! Maybe even find a new book to dive into?
Stop #3- The Wardrobe, Jambalaya Hat and Bead Shop, Knotty Threads & Stuff and Nonsense
These south end shops are must sees! Make sure you have something to carry home all your new found treasures.
Stop #5- Rachel Vadeboncoeur Art Glass- 401 Beaver Point Road
Beautiful art created with recycled glass!
Stop #6- Salt Spring Island Cheese- 285 Reynolds Road
This is where your bread will come in handy! Hidden a little ways up Reynolds Rd Salt Spring Island Cheese is well known around these parts! Recently featured on Top Chef, this stop is well worth the trip to SSI alone!
Stop #7- Tony’s Tarts- 284 Forest Ridge Road
You’re not going to want to share these delicious treats! They are THAT good
Stop #9- Solace Organic Spa- 111 Saltair Lane
Who doesn’t love spas?? Aromatherapy, teas, skincare & spa. Come and relax!
Stop #10- Moonstruck Organic Cheese- 1306 Beddis Road
More cheese, yes!!! You will want to take some home too, right??
Stop #11- The Farmhouse Gallery- 1298 Beddis Road
Metal and glass creations, of the insect variety.
Stop #13- Burgoyne Bay- Best seen at sunset, maybe this could be your last stop before going home??
Stop #15- Monster Lab- 2210 Fulford Ganges Road
The kid in all of us will love this unique shop! Truly one of a kind!
Well, that’s probably enough for one day! Off to the ferry?
